According to the operation log, confirm that the customer is to use LunId 33(Dedupelun_3) to expand for LunId 9(DE02SASRG2LUN01):

To check the current state of LUN, LunId 9 is a primary LUN which has been expanded. And in this time of expansion, the slave LUN (LunId 33) is in the formatting state: 

Though the slave LUN (LunId 33) is in the formatting state, but this is not the root for the failure of LUN extension. Exclude the reason about the status of LUN itself, continue to check whether it is configured any value-added feature: 

Confirm that SmartCache Pool 0 has added the LUN (LunId 9, DE02SASRG2LUN01): 

Through ISM to find the corresponding LUN (LunId 9, DE02SASRG2LUN01), to select LUN advanced features > close SmartCache function. In the situation of not opening SmartCache, and then complete the LUN extension with the LUN (DE02SASRG2LUN01).

The situation about which primary LUN can’t be extended, as following: 

The health status of primary LUN is "fault" state. 

The running state of primary LUN is "formatting" state. 

The type of primary LUN is private". 

Configure value-added feature, such as: snapshot, remote copy, LUN copy, etc.
