Information and/or Action


  • Storage expansion requires unallocated free disk space associated with the /vastorage and/or /var partitions.

  • Use the tools and processes provided by your hypervisor vendor to expand the virtual disks that contain the partitions you want to expand.

  • Restart the appliance so that the operating system can detect the disks that have been expanded.

Appliance Disks Containing Unallocated Free Space: If no disks are listed, nothing is available to be expanded.

Expand partitions

  • After selecting the devices you want to expand, click this option.

    Appliance services are stopped, the selected partitions are expanded to the size of their respective disks, and appliance services are restarted.

  • Restart the appliance again so that the management software detects that the unallocated disk space has been used.
