I currently have a Microsoft Hyper-V 2008 R2 Server, bare-bones installation, hosting two WIN2K8R2 Virtual Machines. They are both part of our ERP software. One is an Application/Terminal Server and the other is the SQL Server.
Currently, I have the SQL server configured for 250GB of diskspace which is now down to 31GB due to multiple SQL databases, etc. I need to create more space on the VM. I expanded the VHD to 500GB but realized that it only created another partition of unallocated space.
What is the best way to merge the two partitions without causing any data loss. We have been working on this ERP (Epicor P21) implementation for nearly two years and I don't want it to all go down the drain because of a VHD failure, etc.
