To enlarge file systems on the fly without unmounting them first, just like we
always do on other unixes, you must purchase the OnLineJFS add-on to HP-UX. I
think that it should have been included in the first place. HP marketing
doesn't agree with me on this though.

      HP OnLineJFS HP 9000 Workstation License
      Must order one license-to-use for each
      HP 9000 Workstation that will require
      HP OnLineJFS features

        Description
       HP OnLineJFS Media HP 9000 Workstations
       Select a media option to receive
       HP OnLineJFS (AAH, AAU, 0D1). Order
       a license for each HP 9000 Workstation
       that requires HP OnLineJFS
       functionality, B5118AA.
