Hi.

not much useful from me, I am afraid:
did you test this and removal worked the way you try it? If you didn't test it, test it now with a bunch of VHDs.

The existing disk needs to be retired. Once retired, the new disk can be brought in to the Pool.

It's a bit of a process to do it but it works.

We haven't tested the process in 2016 yet (we're deploying our first three 2016 clusters this month with one already started). Hopefully it has improved and the new rebalance feature works for converged setups.

I couldn't remove/retire the disk. I ended up removing the storage space and restoring from backup
