V7000: Finding the exact volume size in bytes

In certain situations you need to know the exact byte size of a volume.  Unfortunately the GUI does not provide exact  sizing.
This can become a problem when setting up global or metro mirroring.  The volume that you are copying the data to has to be the exact
size of the original volume.  If it is not, the setup of the mirror will fail.

At this point the only way to figure out the exact size of a volume is through the CLI.
The following command will give you the exact byte size

svcinfo lsvdisk -bytes nameofthevolume
