Hey Anthony,

I assume this would be a candidate situation where you'd put the primary storage in maintenance
mode and then perform the steps you referred me to?

When the storage is brought out of maintenance mode, will it see the new size or is there
something more that has to be done on the CS side?

Thanks!
