Hello Experts,

I’m new to the virtual server world and need some help setting up a virtual server using Hyper-V.  I want to create a virtual server that will have two volumes (one for the operating system and one for data).  I have created a 300GB volume on our EqualLogic where the virtual server will reside.  I created a 60GB virtual machine in Hyper-V manager that is running Server 2008R2.  With the remaining space in the EqualLogic volume, I created a second virtual hard drive.  My question is how do I get the virtual server to see the second virtual hard drive?  If I try to add hardware in Hyper-V manager, there is no option to add a hard drive.  Is there a better way to set this up?

As always, any and all help is greatly appreciated.
