Extended iSCSI disk creates issues with DPM storage disk RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using iSCSI disks on a Hyper-V host and running DPM 2012 in a Hyper-V guest.  I extended the iSCSI disk to create additional space for DPM.  DPM was unable to use the additional space for volumes.  It reported a VPS error as follows:

    Error 360: The operation failed due to a virtual disk service error
    Error details: VdsError:The specified disk extent size exceeds the size of free disk space.
     (0x80042515)
    Recommended action: Retry the operation..

    The disk shows up in disk management as shown in the attached picture.  The disk appears as a non-contiguous disk which is what I think the problem is.  Any idea on why expanding the iSCSI disk creates this issue?

  • Hi Rob,

    I had the same issue before. Taking the disk offline and then online and then rescan te disk with DPM fixed the problem for me.
