I have recently added another disk to a RAID 5 array.
spec: dell poweredge server
PERC 4e/di RAID controller
Windows Server 2003
DELL OMSA version 5.2 installed.
The original ARRAY consists of 3 DISKs 143GB each in size resilting in a total amount of available space of 286GB. This disk was previosly partitioned to 10GB, 20GB and 253GB drives
The last partition (253GB) is used for data. I added and extra 143GB disk to the array and wanted to increase the amount of space in the last partition of the virtual disk.
Have managed to reconfigure the array and DELL OMSA is reporting the disk correctly at 409GB however in Windows it is still showing as a 253 GB disk.
I do not really want to install 3rd party software such as partition magic.
is there something i am missing here to allow windows to see the extra space?
