How to add extra memory to root file system in UNIXware7.1.3?

Hi I have installed unixware7.1.3 on vmware workstation previously and I have allotted 8GB to the whole system.

I want to add extra space to the existing system by using another virtual harddisk added by using VMware.

Kindly suggest the procedure.

is the new image the same size?

The current image.. what filesystem?
is it configured with LVM (Logical Volume Management)?
what is the current disk usage... any directories obvious candidates for migrating?

it can be as simple as
  1. putting a filesystem on new image,
  2. adding fstab entry
  3. temporary mount
  4. moving data,
  5. mount --move TempMount RealMount

but really depends on circumstances

good learning/practice...

But , it might be easier to look at resizing the current image with VMware's tools
