The dbdst_addvol command is used to grow an existing DBDST ready MVS filesystem
by adding a new volume to the filesystem. DBA need to specify storage_class to which
the new volume belongs to. This command
adds the new volumes to the volume set, which is specified by the
mount_device, then add the volumes to the filesystem.
It also classifies the volumes to the desired class.
The filesystem should be mounted and the
new volumes being added should be already created when this command is executed.
The new volumes should be owned by the user executing the command.
If a chunksize is defined for the storage class, then the existing DST policy will be
enforced for the filesystem.
This command can be executed when database is online.
