Steps to expand shared VHDX ties within Guest Cluster
Posted on 2015-02-10
I am running SCVMM 2012 R2 Environment with many clusters of Hyper-V hosts(2012). For SQL databases, two VMs are inplace in it with failover cluster manager inside Guest VMs clustering two VMs resources.
shared VHDX has been provisioned as dynamic with SCSI Adaptors to these VMs and have following checkmarked "share the disk across the service tier"
now there is a request came to expand that VHDX to 200GB from 50GB. but i cant see any expand option with these disk...
my questions are:
1-)Is there any way we can expand dynamic vhdx which are shared within guest cluster?
2-)If yes than what is the process in detail?
3-)sequence of performing that activity will be helpful?
4-)Is there any service/disk outage involved in expansion of VHDX?
