I currently have a Windows 2008 R2 server (VM) which has 6x 2TB dynamic disks which are spanned to create a volume of 12TB.
Currently only 1.2TB is in use so I want to shrink the volume to 3TB to allow for growth.
If I go through the GUI shrink wizard to make it 3TB, will it mean that I can remove 4 of the 2TB disks? or will that 3TB be split across all 6 disks?
I want to be able to use 8TB for another server, so just wondering if this is going to work, or whether there will be data loss, or other complications.
If it is as simple as shrinking to 3TB, and then deleting the unused disks, I can then resize the disk in the VM properties from 12TB to 3TB without any issues? (ESXi 4.1)
