Extending Drive Space...
OK so I go to shut-down the server this morning (before anyone is due in) to extend drive C: on the main AD Server....
I have a formatted drive attached to the VM in VMWare, but in no way shape or form will it let me extend drive C:, I get the option to shrink but not extend... In VMWare if I click the drive all the boxes are greyed out even when the machine is powered off. In one of those boxes I should be able to edit the drive space and the start the VM and extend the volume. But it's not giving me the option!
Any Ideas ?

I think I had a similar problem once - IIRC it was because there was a snapshot on the VM. Also check VMWare tools install/update is not running and that hard disk type is SCSI not IDE. Is the disk thin provisioned?

yeah all thin provisioned, I've just selected to delete the latest snapshot and its sticking at 95% - will try again once I've sorted that out.
