I receive the following error
Failed to extend disk : There is not enough space on the file system for the selected operation (13).
When I run this command:
vmkfstools -X 240G srvr.vmdk
The disk is thick provisioned, lazy zeroed. The host is ESXi 5.1.
The guest is Windows Server 2012.
The datastore is mapped to a compellent storage device. The volume on the compellent was expanded from 80GB to 250GB. It maps correctly, and I can power on the guest OS.
The original request was for a simple test server, which, after deployment, changed, and required the system to have additional space. I retrieved a replay from the compellent and expanded the volume. Then mapped it back to the ESXi host. The volume on the compellent shows the full 250GB. Now I need to expand the datastore.
Am I using the wrong command for this? I am unable to expand the vmdk from the GUI either.
