SUMMARY: Why isn't partition correct size?

I forgot to resize the file system in Volume Manager.

Original problem:
I'm using Volume Manager 2.4 on Solaris 2.5.1 with a SSA 100 RAID
and a bunch of 2.1 and 4.0 GB Seagate disks. Our /opt filesystem
if composed of two disks, 723,000K and 350M (the second disks's
plex offset is 723,000K). The plex size is 1,080,000K, as is the
volume size. Yet, the filesystem as mounted is always UNDER 700 M!
Thanks go to Roar Smith for the answer!
