Symptoms: N/A

 

Possible Resolution(s):

 

This process is applicable to Stratusphere™ Database Appliance running on VMware ESX, Citrix

XenServer, and Microsoft Hyper-V.Here is the process to add storage to a Stratusphere™ Database

Appliance:

 

  1. Shutdown the Stratusphere Database Appliance.
  2. Liquidware Labs recommends taking a snapshot of the Stratusphere™ Hub before proceeding.
  3. In the appropriate hypervisor client, expand the size of the disk to a new size. Save the new settings.
    In most cases you will expand the DB and temp DB disks. They should be the same size.
    Note: Please do NOT reduce the size of an existing disk.
  4. Power ON the Stratusphere™ Hub.
  5. The Stratusphere™ Database Appliance will automatically recognize the additional space and expand the size of its partitions. Log intothe Stratusphere™ Web UI Administration section and navigate to the Hub Administration > Data Retention tab and verify the additional free space available. If you get an error message, please contact Support.
  6. If there are no errors, delete the snapshot (If one was taken in step 2) to merge the changes into the Appliance's hypervisor disk.
