Hey Checkyourlogs Fans,
Today, I had a call from a customer that had a full volume on one of their AzureStack HCI 2-Node Clusters. They have a few volumes created CSV01,02,03, and they are all set up to use Nested Relisiency. I found that the documentation out there didn’t have a perfect example of how to do this for this scenario so here you go.
As you can see, CSV03 is down to 1 MB free, and this is causing our problem.
With the few steps below, you can see how I expanded this volume using existing pool free space.
First, let’s have a look at the Storage Tiers: Get-StorageTier
Now, Resize CSV03 – Get-StorageTier csv03* | Reize-StorageTier -size 1250GB -Verbose
Verify the change – Get-VirtualDisk
Expand the Parition –
# Choose virtual disk
$VirtualDisk = Get-VirtualDisk CSV03
# Get its partition
$Partition = $VirtualDisk | Get-Disk | Get-Partition | Where PartitionNumber -Eq 2
# Resize to its maximum supported size
$Partition | Resize-Partition -Size ($Partition | Get-PartitionSupportedSize).SizeMax
So just like that, we have expanded our Nested Resilient Volume in AzureStack HCI.
