Subject RE: [DOC] Is the Working with Volumes section missing from docs on purpose?
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2013 20:49:15 GMT
Hi Marcus, devs,

Can you also please clarify the following:

- what hypervisor platforms are supported with 4.1?
- does this require a reboot of the VM?
- Is this statement from the FS still accurate/implemented? "volume resize will be allowed
between disk offerings with the same storage tag. for example, if an admin has defined a 5GB
and a 10GB disk offering, a user can upgrade from the 5GB to the 10GB. If the admin has made
a custom-sized disk offering available, then resize will work simply by specifying a new,
larger size. Additionally, a data volume can be moved from a static disk offering to a custom
disk offering with the size specified"
- what platforms support downsizing the volume, if any? If downsized, what happens to the
data?
- It would also be nice to see a short example write up of what needs to be done in the guest
OS to make this work..

Thanks a lot!

Hari Kannan

Hi Marcus/Talluri

 I snatched this feature from Jessica :-)

Could you please explain me the functionality of the Shrink OK button on the Resize Volume
popup ?

Thanks

That is interesting. Has anyone written the resizing volumes section? I saw a task for it
but nobody assigned.
