Good morning all,
I had a question, here is my situation:
Yesterday i expanded the D drive on a SQL server, the server is running server 2008 Std R2, it is a virtual server running ESXi 5.0.
The D drive was at 1.7TB, and the server is connected to a SAN. I allocated an additional 100GB to the server, first adding space on the SAN, then expanding the space in vsphere. After that i added space to the VM's D drive via the edit settings. and lastly I went onto the guest OS and extended the D drive through disk management.
Currently the set up is as follows:
The drive has 1.815 TB allocated to it, total available space from the SAN is 2.048TB so there is enough of a buffer.
When i extended the drive through disk management, disk management saw more space than what i allocated, so i changed the size of the drive to reflect the space added, it added all but 411mb. i then extended the drive 410mb to use the rest of the space.
Once that was done, i received an error about the drive being corrupt (see attachment)
After that i tested the drive, and i was able to create, edit and delete a test text document on the drive. Also last night, i ran a check on the drive and prompted the drive to fix errors. That completed and this morning i am still seeing the same thing.
If you look at the image, in disk management it shows all the space i allocated, 1.858.56TB, but if you look at the size of the C drive, you will see that it is only showing 1.756.16 TB.
What could cause this?
any help would be appreciated.
