ESX 4 - Need to add or expand partition for our backup software
Posted on 2011-09-21
Is it possible to expand a current partion on our service console ? We have 2 hosts in a cluster that runs eVault agents to back up VM's. I did not configure enought storage on the root parition to accomodate for the catalog files that seem to fill up the root partition quicly now that we are running more VM's then we did in the past. Is it possible to mount a new partition or expand a current partition to where I can reinstall our BU agent to? I would like to look at maybe creating a 10g partition or expanding one of the current partitions. Looking for any help doing so.
