Thanks Jim, It's basically a cosmetic issue just wanting them to look the same.
I will have to mull this over and decide is it worth the reload.

Really appreciate you getting back to me

You cannot go from larger to smaller, so what your trying to do won't work.

Reload time if you really need to do it.

Why do the disk configurations need to be the same? In the end it really doesn't matter to IBM i.

I have a 9406 520 that I'm trying to copy the load source disk to a smaller size disk.
Actually trying to copy from a 4328 at 40% capacity to a 4327. When trying the
copy from DST it tells me no eligible disk for the copy. Does anyone know if this
is possible or anyone that has actually done this? We are doing this to try and
keep the disk configurations the same on our primary and target Iseries boxes.

Thanks for any help or guidance,
