With this resizing method, the blocks on the new nodes are appended
to the current address space of the volume. The new space is instantly
available without performance decrease, but the size and redundancy of the
new nodes must be identical to the existing ones. Therefore, the number
of new nodes must be at least as big as the redundancy of the volume.

The number of nodes specified in the node list must be a multiple of the
given number of master nodes. This means that the nodes for a redundancy level
have to be either completely specified, or not at all.
All remaining levels of redundancy are distributed throughout the nodes
of the last specified level of redundancy.

Mandatory Parameters

Parameter Name Data Type Description
vid integer id of an existing volume
