Adding drive space to a VM box
Posted on 2011-05-04
I have a new Dell PowerEdge T610 server. It currently has two VMs running on it, using up (equally) the 300 GB that initially came with the server.
I would like to add some drive space to one of the VMs. Specifically, I have brought in 2*1TB drives, which I would like to mirror, and then make the space available to VM1.
I do not have a lot of experience with VMs, and am curious as to how this is handled. Do I first add it to the Dell server, through the built-in RAID controller utilities? Can I use Server Manager on VM1 to setup these new drives?
Any helpful guidance appreciated.
