GROWFS(7) FreeBSD Miscellaneous Information Manual GROWFS(7)

growfs
start up script to grow the root file-system

The following options in /etc/rc.conf control the behavior of growfs:
growfs_enable
(“NO”) If set to “YES”, the first time the machine boots, the root file-system will be automatically expanded, if possible, to fill up all available space after it.
To expand the root file-system with-out rebooting, run the following command:
% /etc/rc.d/growfs onestart

The script requires that awk be present and on the path. This usually means that /usr should be mounted prior to running the script.

/etc/rc.conf

The growfs utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

rc.conf(5)

The man page and script were written by John-Mark Gurney <jmg@FreeBSD.org>.
November 1, 2014 FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE
