Server 2003 Boot Hard Drive Partition Expansion
Posted on 2010-08-21
Hi.. I have a client that has Windows Server 2003 Enterprise (not the DC, but a member server which houses the Users Home folders) and is running out of space.. their configuration is.. (3) SCSI drives set in RAID 5. They have added (2) extra disk drives to this array, but not yet integrated.. Their is only one partition in this current arrangement which holds the OS and the DATA folders.
My question is.. when I go to disk manager I see the added drive space available (not yet allocated) - What is the best method for me expand my drive to use this extra space - with the LEAST :) probability of "bombing" the OS and having to reinstall? - I have thought of several options, but my main concern is that the Users Home folders get this extra space.
I have thought of - Partition Resizing, Expanding (would have to convert from basic to dynamic, i think, but didn't want to risk trashing the OS), - Mount Points, etc..
Thanks for your help... any and all. -Bill L.
