Best way to add multi TB disk to multi TB VM

Veeam Logoby dwright1542 » Sat Dec 03, 2016 7:49 pm

I've got a VM that already has 4TB of data, all seeded and replicated successfully. I need to add another 4 TB volume to it. What's the best way to do this, and then just seed the new volume? I don't want to have to seed the entire VM again.

thanks!

You could try to add the same disk to a replica VM and edit VMX of the latest restore point correspondingly, however, this was not specifically tested. Alternatively, you will have to either seed the entire VM or let the job sync the new disk in its entirety.
