    Hi Nigel,

    I had a query regarding shrinkvdisk command , I had expanded a vdisk two times by mistake . This expanded new volume is not scanned / initialized from host side . Is it advisable to run shrinkvdisk from svc to reclaim the extra space which is allocated. The lun is a production live lun. Please advise on this.

    Regards
    John
