How many times you can expand HDD size on a VM?

Hi,

Is there any limitation of how many times you can expand a HDD on a vm or windows 2008 R2?

We have a vm server and one of the hard drive is out of space again. I had expanded this HDD several times before (10-15times may be). Now I need to put another 100-200GB

Thanks.

no there is no limitation on the number of times you increase the disk space.
the limitation only on the total size of the vmdk file, which is 2 TB for vsphere 5.

Kind of confused on this question..  Provided you have the space / data on the drive - you should be able to expand the drive as needed as many times as necessary.  I do recall that W2008, you can re-size on the fly where older require the system to restart.

HTH,

Kent
