I had downtime scheduled to extend a lun.. here lies the problem..
I've extended the volume fine..
When I went to expand the disk I ran into problems...
I have a 'different' icon on one of the disks as shown in img1 when I right click I get no extend option..
do you think this is because this lun wasnt created with snapdrive (Im assuming it wasnt)
So my question is really.. what are my options... would upgrading snapdrive to the latest version allow me to manage luns that werent created with snapdrive??
or is my only real option to disconnect the disk and try either reconnecting it or connect it to a server running the latest version of snap drive?
Also I have another server that just doesnt show any disks under 'disks' in snapdrive which is more the behaviour I would expect if they werent created in snapdrive... any suggestions on this one? Upgrade again I guess???
I've seen this before when SnapDrive recognises a disk wrongly as a SAN boot disk. Try restarting the SnapDrive service, but as an extreme you may need to reboot the server to get this back as a normal LUN.
