Need help with using Diskpart?
Posted on 2006-06-13
I have ML350 Proliant server. It has Mirror raid array. I have two partitions on it. C: (8GB) and a D: (60GB) on the mirror. I am running out of space on the C: and D: partitions. I bought two new hot plug hard drives. I installed them, expanded the raid array then I extended the drives. It now shows up in my disk administrator as 1 drive with C: and D: partition and 68GB of unallocated space.
I was thinking of using Diskpart.exe to expand the both partitions using the unallocated space.
I did a diskpart.exe on the server
I typed List disk and it showed
Disk # Size Free
Disk 0 136GB 68GB
I then typed Select Disk 0
I typed List part
Partition type size offset
Partition1 Primary 8001mb 16kb
partition2 Extended 60 GB 8001mb
partition3 Logical 60 GB 8001mb
I need to do a extend command but sure what to type to extend C: Partition then extend the D: Partition
I am suppose to select a partition I think c: partion is the Primary which would be 1
select partition 1
extend (amount of space of the unallocated I want to use)
which partition is the D: partion?
Am I way off or what?
