I received new hard drives and I am expanding my Exchange 2003 data store holding one of our 4 storage groups..
Just to cover myself, I wanted to find out if I need to do anything with Exchange when I add the extra space. My gut tells me just to expand the volume and the OS will see the new space... thus making it available to be written (by Exchange or another app).
- Dedicated Dual Dell PowerEdge 2650s in am active/passive cluster. Each is a dual P4 3.0GHz with 4GB RAM
- Each server has 4x36GB / 10k rpm / SCSI disks in a RAID5 holding the OS and the Exchange installation.
- Data store is on an EMC CX500 SAN. The LUN with the storage group was only 100GB and I have another 100GB LUN that I need to expand on.
