I am running Hyper-V on a Server 2008 R2. The hardware is a Dell PowerEdge R710 and PowerVault MD1200. The OS is running an a RAID 1 array. There is a 2+Tb RAID 5 array for the virtual drive(s). I have also just created another 1.6Tb RAID 5 array that I would like to use for a virtual drive as well. I am running (1) virtual server on this configuration. The VM is currently using (3) virtual disks in addition to a CD/DVD.
Here's the issue. In Hyper-V Manager, it shows I am using all available IDE ports: Controller 1 has (2) hard drives, and Controller 2 has (1) hard drive and (1) DVD. How do I add another virtual disk? I do show a SCSI controller in the hardware list for the VM. Can I create the disk here? Should I move the DVD to the SCSI controller and add the new disk to the IDE controller? I do not anticipate adding any more drives to this system. What would be the best practice?
