Lintith,

Create a new VDISK and move the data and reduce the size of vdisk.

If you are reducing 400GB to 300GB there will be data loss.

Hi, LUN shrinking has been possible for some time. Check http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01712165/c01712165.pdf page 20

It's possible in Windows 2008 with some limitations.

LUN extending is as simple as changing the size on the vdisk properties and save changes.

Hi,
no, expansion the LUN is an online operation in OS Windows.
a) eva expansion to new size (basic disk)
b) windows diskpart to extend the original disk with the new extends - unallocated space)
the pain is one part of the reality
