Any issues with adding space to a san vol, increasing the storage capacity in vsphere and then extending the windows partion I should be weary of.  My c drive is at two gigs and my transportreceipt monitor caused mail to stop comign in due to reporting low resources.  changed that flag to not monitor and all was flowing again, but want to add about 10gig space to the c volume uppig the 2 that's there.  yes 2.5 exact isn't enough for the transportreceipt monitoring apparently.(found that on the internet).  Thx

Should be straight forward, increase the LUN space on the SAN, click properties on the datastore, click Increase, select LUN with additional space, follow wizard.

make sure you rescan and refresh for datastore properties to change.

edit VM, disk size, increase to size, just be careful no snapshots assigned to parent disk.

later in OS, Disk Management select partition Expand.

Just make sure you have a full backup of VM, before partition and disk changes.

Disk partition changes are the same for all Windows 2008 VMs, and Exchange 2010, just make sure you have a valid backup and not a VMware Snapshot, just in case the Disk Management Expand, goes wrong.

There will be no issues with your Exchange 2010 server, but I would perform the change out of hours. We increase LUNs and Partitions on the fly, of Exchange 2010 servers we host and manage "expand on the fly", but we do it at quiet times, also check your change does not occur in a backup Window.
