In this kind of case it may happen the block size selected for the FS while its creation is different, so you can grow the FS by taking the size from( vxassist -g dgname maxsize diskname) command as mentioned below:

# vxassist -g oradgh maxsize emcpower67
Maximum volume size: 230391808 (112496Mb)

# /etc/vx/bin/vxresize -g oradgh fh01vol +230391808 emcpower67

So the FS grown as above.. Please let meknow if any doubts..

Thanks,
Yogesh
