Increase VDISK on NTFS

I want to add 50GB to an existing 150GB Vdisk on my EVA5000 which is presented to a Windows 2003 Server as a basic NTFS disk. Will Windows automatically see the additional 50GB? If not, how do I extend the disk without losing current data? Thanx

Re: Increase VDISK on NTFS

tla,

for an EVA4000 this is very easy. And no, there's no data loss.
- Add the 50 GB in command view
- Check if you see the additional 50 GB in the storage manager (part of computer management)
- if not right click on the storage manager and rescan all devices
- now the additional 50 GB should be shown
- start diskpart from the command line
- execute 'list volume' in diskpart and figure out the volume no. of the volume you want to resize
- exexcute 'select volume x' where x is the above mentioned volume no.
- execute 'extend'
- close diskpart

Finished.
