Expanding an NSS Partition w/New Drive

I have a 3200 in an ML530. I already have 4 Netware Partitions - Diagnostics, Dos, System and NSS. I have added another harddrive and would like to add this to the NSS Partition. Netware sees the new space, but I am unable to add it to the existing NSS Partition. ServerMagic 3.0 doesn't seem to allow me to do this either.

It looks like it wants me to either create another partition or delete what I have and recreate it using the new drive at that time. Can the controller configuration software add the new space to the NSS Partition without having to create a new partition or rebuilding it from scratch?

Re: Expanding an NSS Partition w/New Drive

No, the Array Configuration Utility has no relation to an Operating System, therefore it can't add space to an operating system partition. If Netware sees the new space created by the Array Configuration Utilty, then it has done it's job.

Have a nice day,
