Error: Invalid Parameter when trying to extend volume in Windows Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • From VMware, I added space to a Hard Drive to a Windows Server 2012 VM.  I then went into the WinServer console, and opened Disk Management.  I did a rescan on the disk.  It found the extra space.  I right mouse click on the Disk, and choose Extend Volume, choose the available space, and then an error returned of 'Invalid Parameter'.

    In Disk Manager, the new larger space is assigned, but Windows Explorer and everything else only recognizes the original smaller size.  

    EventManager shows Event ID 265: A pointer device did not report a valid unit of angular measurement.  Event ID 257: A pointer device reported a bad angular physical range. Event ID 258: A pointer device reported a bad angular logical range.

    Anyone have a solution for this problem?
