VMWARE drive mapping to an existig exchange server

Hi Experts,

on my Exchange server I have too less space.
But I have a new NETAPP Storage with much more space.
Is it possible for the time being , add a drive to my exchange server and move some db´s ?

This may help you - check what level of licenses you are using with VMWare:

My exchange server now is no VM.
Is it also possible to do this for a physical server to connect a drive from the netapp ?

Hi,
yes it is possible with a physical server.
But you speak of VMware in your title so I assume this is why an expert answered you about VMware.

If your exchange physical server is already attached and configured with the Netapp, this will take little time to your storage admin to present a new disk to your exchange.

You can add a physical LUN to your physical server via iSCSI, and then format this new drive with NTFS , add a drive letter, and then move DB, using Exchange Admin.
