Subject Re: Question about changing characteristics of a VM or data disk
Date Tue, 26 Mar 2013 16:33:05 GMT
Currently the vm needs to be off. There is a dangerous DB hack to do in-place resource changes,
but most simply turn off the vm before adjusting the compute offering as allowed by the GUI.

Hope that helps.
