This should be pretty simple, but I do not want to make a mistake. I created a WIndows 2008 r2 server that is used as a SQL server. There is an E drive that was only allocated 20 GB in VMWARE and now needs to be extended 10GB. I know that I need to go into vmware and edit settings on the server and expand the drive to 30GB, but what is the next step? Is it as simple and going into the user, running disk management and extending the drive? Are there any dangers or anything I should be especially careful of?
