Okay, so now let's log into this system
and verify that we can see the new disc that was added.
So I opened up Windows Explorer.
I could see that I still have have not expanded this particular drive even though I have extended the partition
So what I need to do is
creating four man hardest partitions or just management tool.
That tells me that it found a new disk,
and I can go ahead and initialize this
notice. You get the option to use the N b E r G P T format.
You would only use GPT
if the disk was larger than two terabytes. So this is only three gigabytes. I'll just stick with standard NPR.
All right, so now I'm the first task. Let's expand this partition, since I needed to do that from earlier
adding the one gigabyte of unallocated space.
A new disk. Just 10 was my C drive,
and this disc is basically
rob device mapping, so there's nothing on this system right now. Okay, So in order for me to use this this storage with this virtual machine, I still have to
right click the volume
saying that it's a new, simple volume.
I can specify its size. I could just use the maximum available here
and even give it a new drive letter.
Or I could mount it as an anti F s
to an existing folder. But right now, I'm just gonna make it a regular Dr.
And we get our usual choices
for doing a quick format.
All right, now that disk is usable.
my computer and refresh the screen, I can see that I've got
my additional space available on the C drive
and my new volume with three gigabytes available Space is now ready for use.
Okay, cellar. Next task.
expanding a thin provisioned disc
first we're going to need to shut down this virtual machine.
And then what I'm going to do is add
another virtual disc
as a thin provisioned disk, and then we will see some of the changes that happened,
when the discus formatted and also when we try to inflate it to its full size,
So we'll go back to edit settings.
In this case, I'm gonna create a new virtual death. Last time we added a rod device mapping,
so it doesn't need to be very big.
And I'll select thin provisioning
if you'll recall from our earlier discussion.
Thin provisioning means that can eventually get to two gigabytes and size,
when it's provisioned. It starts off with a very small amount of storage and grows as needed,
so this allows for quicker provisioning. But you do take a slight hit and performance because the disk file needs to be expanded, as data has written to the desk.
Anyways, we'll stick with thin provisioning,
pick the defaults cosy node,
and I'll go ahead and click finish. And it says that now it's adding that disk.
now what I'd like to do is
look at the data store
So got my summary tab
selected, and I could just right click my dear storm browsing.
is in the wind. Seven folder.
Ah, the second disk, which goes to the raw mapping
is seven underscore one,
and then win seven. Underscore, too,
the provision size is
but the actual sizes zero.
So a couple things that we need to think about here. If I were to form at this disk
within the guest operating system,
the size would change. It would go to AA couple 100 kilobytes,
I believe, for a size for disk this large.
But what I want to do now is
just what the what the
the disc. In a raw format with no file system, I still want to be able to grow it to its full provision size just to see that this is possible.
So what we can do is right. Click and select Inflate.
This will take a little bit of time,
tells you where which host it's on
rather which data stores on and which folder V. M d K file exists.
inflate this disk, it wouldn't matter, really. If I had a file system on the disk already or not,
it would still work the same way. The only major drawback
for this operation is that the machine must be powered down for this step
once. Once that completes,
then we should be able to look at the provisions provisions to size and the regular size, and they should more or less match up.
All right, now we can see that
the size of the the disc has now grown to the full two gigabytes.
The provision size no longer has a
entry here because now we've expanded
to the full provision size. There's no reason to list that information redundantly.
And if we look at the summary tab for this P. M,
we can see that we've got our
provisions storage here,
showing the new total available storage and the total that we see is the sum of all the
just sort of been allocated weaken
go back at it settings
and we can look at our disks.
I got one just that's 12 gig.
three gigs. I remember
another one. That's true.
I'm sorry that the raw match one is eight.
I believe that's a kicker bites.
this is the total provisions storage for the entire VM
with the various different disks that we've attached.
Okay, so we've we've added, Ah, a rod device disc.
We've added another virtual disk that was thin, provisioned, and then we,
inflated it to its full size,
which is basically they whipped the equivalent of doing a thick provisioning where you build the entire
when it when the VM is created.
And we also increase the memory for this V m.
So that concludes Lab 10
What we'll be doing is working with migrating virtual machines
where we can use things like
of emotion and storage of emotion.
All right, See you in, lad. 11. Thank you.
