i've recently joined a company as admin using this product.
we have one virtual disk which is set to 4500gb, raid 5, 7 drives , 4 volumes.
there are 4 volumes of which one is a filestore which is running out of space.
there is still 500gb free on the virtual disk.
i want to increase the size of the filestore volume by this amount.
using the web configuration tool, i can progress to
Manage - Volume Management - Expand Volume -
where i can enter a value to adjust the Volume size.
My question(s) is/are:
1.."enter mb to expand volume"..does this mean enter only the amount that you wish to expand the selected volume by? or the total size once expanded?
2..the volume i wish to resize appears physically at the beginning at the virtual disk...the space free being listed after the four volumes at the end...if i expanded the filestore volume would it happily extend to this freespace at the end? (refering to the Volume Map & Table).
3...can this be done "on the fly?" ie working hours and if so is there any visiable affect on service?
is there anything else i should consider?
apologies for inexperience.
any help would be great thanks
