Hi All,

We have a Dell Equal Logic, which has 2.61TB capacity.

I created a 2TB volume and presented it to two ESX servers.

This has been working well, however we are running low on space on the 2TB volume.

I'd like to increase the volume size to 2.5TB, here

SAN Space
What affect will this have on the VM's running on it?

many thanks

Quite Simply NONE!

No effect on running VMs, it's a seamless change!

We do this process daily, across client multiple sites.

Excellent thanks.


I've increased the volume size.  How do I get the ESX server to detect it's grown?

Select Properties of the Datastore - Increase, and then select the new LUN space, follow the wizard.
