Re: eva vdisk extension presented to windows cluster

first check if the operating system support volume extension. if you are using windows server 2003
1)extend the vdisk on the eva
2)then the extended space will appear as unallocated space directly after the volume that you want to extend in the disk manager
3)use diskpart to extend the volume.

you don't have to take any cluster node offline just do the work on the active node
