Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

can anyone recommend a re-partitioning tool to resize the primary partition of a VHD that I’ve just expanded by a couple of GB which has windows server 2003 32bit standard installed. I'm using Windows Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 as the host.

edit: the partition is a system partition

I don't have a third party recommendation, but here's a thread from social.technet.com that suggests connecting the volume to a Server 2008 VM and expanding it there, then reconnecting it to a 2003 VM. It's something I plan to try with a recent P2V: social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/winserverhyperv/thread/… –  Rob D. Jan 4 '11 at 16:38

For a third party app. I prefer using Acronis' Disk Director: http://www.acronis.com/enterprise/products/diskdirector-server/
