Extending a Volume in an Exchange 2007 Single Copy Cluster
Posted on 2011-03-01
We have 2 Exchange Mailbox servers in a Single-Copy Cluster configuration, both looking at several volumes that contain our Exchange databases. One of these volumes contains 3 databases, and is almost out of disk space. Ive move mailboxes out, reclaimed white-space, etc, but now I need to extend the volume. Its very straightforward on the SAN LUN, and in Server 2008 to extend to volume, but what are the considerations for the Cluster Manager?
Are these any steps that I need to perform in the Failover Cluster Management? I'm planning to dismount the databases during the extend, but leaving the Clustered Disks online. will Exchange self-destruct?
