virtual machine keep pausing
Posted on 2013-01-19
Hi Experts ,
I have 2 hyper-v server 2008 R2 clustered. one of my VM keep pausing with an error of "running out of space" .
inside my VM I have a C: drive of 150GB and 79GB free.
under my array the drive mapped to my cluster for this VM is 150GB big .
when looking at my cluster shared volume I see my drive but only 100GB , so I realized that I am missing 50GB , so I looked at the disk management and I do see my disk allocated for 100GB and 50 GB unallocated , how can I expand my disk to grab the 50GB unallocated?
obviously I made a mistake when I created it ,
I am glad it happened on this VM as it is only used for system center essentials so if it goes down it doesn't really affect my users , but I still need to fix it.
Also I would like to understand the following :
when I create a VM I usually create a drive that I bring in my cluster shared volumes, and then I save the virtual machine and the vhd file in this volume ( and each vm has its own drive) , I thought the configuration of the vm would take only few meg and the rest should only be on the vhd file but apparently I have my vhd file and also a folder called virtual machines with 2 files in it;1 bin file that is about 10 gig and a vsv file that is 20 meg.
Can someone clarify that and also help me on fixing my drive by expanding the disk?
