  • Hi,

    Are you able to extend your virtual disk, if you right-click the virtual disk under "Virtual Disks" and then select Extend?

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Did you add the available three physical disks to the pool?

    I started with 4 discs available and created a pool with 3 discs in automatic mode.

    After creating the pool I tried to add the remaining disk and I couldn't.

    I added two more new disks on the servers (iSCSI) in offline mode and they also don't appear.

    But when I try to create a new pool it lists all 3 disks free, that is, they are free to use.

  • What if you try with Powershell:

    Adding disk to the pool:

    Add-PhysicalDisk -StoragePoolFriendlyName "PoolName" -PhysicalDisks"physicalDiskObject" -Usage AutoSelect

    Resizing the storage tier:

    Resize-StorageTier –FriendlyName "VDName" -Size "NewVDSize"

    Resizing the volume:

    Resize-Partition –DiskNumber "DiskNumber" -Size "NewVolumeSize"
