How to expand the space on a virtual machine D Drive - VMware Vsphere 5.5.0
Posted on 2014-02-10
We use VMware VSphere client 5.5.0 .We had recently virtualised our Windows 2003 SQL database server. We have D Drive and this drive is used as a DocsStorage.
When user runs a report document are generated and stored on this drive.
Now I get a popup saying Low disks space and also when the users run the report it fails saying with a popup insufficient space.
I don't have experience expanding the disk on the V sphere. If I right click the guest server on the VSphere and go to the virtual machine properties , I can see
Hardisk 1 listed. If I click this I cant see the D drive , where the space needs to be expanded.
Is there a way to see the D: and expand the space.
Any tutorials to expand the space will be very helpful. Will there be any risk doing this.
