Expand Storage Pool disk space RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I had a quick question regarding expanding the underlying virtual disk that is currently being used as a DPM Storage Pool Disk.

    Is this as easy as growing the virtual disk from the host, and then DPM will recognize the change automatically, or do I need to provision another disk and add that to the existing pool?

  • Turns out it was as easy as this. I did need to restart the server after expanding the the volume however. The additional space was recognized immediately, but it through an 'extent' error when setting up a new protection group. After the restart, the error was gone.
