Expnad replicated datastore

What is the best way to expand replicated datastore without breaking the replication in VMware?
I used to expand snapmirrored  NetApp datastore (NFS), but unable to do EMC's RecoverPoint replicated LUN.

Hi

The problem here is RecoverPoint

RP will lock the LUN/device, so when you expand it on the source array, it will not show up on the local ESXi servers.

Unfortunately, there is no way to do this without breaking the replication

Here is the VMware KB article: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2070234

If you have access to EMC Support: http://support.emc.com/kb/8632

Or here: https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-48947

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
