Add Storage to Drive in VMWare

I need to add storage to the 😧 drive on a VM created in VMWare by HPOO. The drive is already there but it currently has no storage. I found a flow under Integrations > VMware > VMware Virtual Infrastructure > Configuration named "Add Disk to VM" however this creates a disk, and the disk is already there. Also I'm pretty sure I'm not putting the correct value for the diskPath variable. Any ideas? I'd appreciate any advice on this. Thanks!

Re: Add Storage to Drive in VMWare

What version of OO are ou running, and what OO patches are applied to your OO installation?

I would assume the purpose of an "Add Disk to VM" operation would be to add/create a new disk on a VM, not to add space to an existing disk.  However, I would like to take a closer look at the operation.  There have been at least a couple of times where VMware integration content has been enhanced or updated over the OO versions, so I need to confirm your OO version and patch level before taking a closer look.

Re: Add Storage to Drive in VMWare

Thank you for your response, my apologies I just saw this post. I was able to create an additional hard disk on the vm, then using HPSA we are formatting disk 0 as the C: drive and disk 1 as the 😧 drive with OO adding the requested amount of storage to each disk. 

 

This works perfectly for Windows 2003 Servers, however on Windows 2008 servers the policy is setting the disk 1 (drive D:smileyhappy: to offline. I have tried to get SA to configure the disk 1 to online, however it is returning an error. I can manually do this on the server using the command line once the server is provisioned, and it successfully puts the 😧 drive there as disk 1. 

 

Is there a way to run a command on the server from HPOO? That way I can automate this process of bringing the disk online. I am using HPOO version 7.60.

 

Thanks!
