I have already install win2k03 on virtual machine with hardisk size 90 GB. Of course right now it is not enough space so i need to change it. Problem is because on this server i have ftp server. I share 2 important directiories which cannot be moved from current location. I have two partitions C and D
I just want to change size of 😧 partition and add adidtionaly 20 - 40 GB. Is it possible to do this from windows and vmware side.
To manage machine i use VM Virtual Center, Hosts are on EXS3.5
Thank you in advance for all replays,
Please do the following steps:
1- Edit VM settings and expand add a new Hard Disk size of 20 GB size.
2- Login to the VM and go to disk management, then rescan all disks.
3- Convert the current disk (D:/) from basic to dynamic if it's not already dynamic.
4- Right click on the new disk and create a new volume choosing the option "Spanned".
Dynamic disk is not necessary.
For Vista and latest OS you can use Disk Manager to extend a volume with free space after it.
With previous OS you can use diskpart (exept for the C: disk where you can use Dell Expart).
But problem is when i want to change size of already existing disk.
I swtich off VM machine
Go to setting and change size of disk,
Applay setting and close settings windows.
I wait moment until vmware accept settings.
And in this moment is something strange i do not run vitrual machine and go to the settings to check disk size. And disk size is the same as before updating.
I cannot change the size. I can only add addidtionaly hardrive.
