Is it possible to expand a disk and update that node?
Let’s assume I have a node with 1 TB of storage that is running. The HDD is a vmdk and I’ll change that to a 2 TB volume by expanding the vmdk by another TB. What happens to my node?
Will it automatically use the newly added space?
Also the Drobo B800i has currently 6x 2 TB drives which gives me 1 Disk parity and a virtual Volume of 1 MB to 16 TBDrobo, takes care of the hard drive space. It’ll warn me if I need to add a drive/ replace a drive and it’ll automatically expand the array with that drive.
Let assume I’ll give the note 1 TB (assign an iscsi volume of said size to the vm).
I’ll now expand this iscsi Volume to a capacity of 2 T
What happens to my node?
As for Backup… I Have several Drobo FS with 5x 1TB sitti g here collecting dust…
