Resize the partition

The virtual disk is expected to have two partitions: the first is Reserved and should not be modified; the one you need to resize has PartitionNumber = 2 and Type = Basic.

  1. Run follow cmdlet to resize partition.

    # Choose virtual disk

    $VirtualDisk = Get-VirtualDisk CSV01

    # Get its partition

    $Partition = $VirtualDisk | Get-Disk | Get-Partition | Where PartitionNumber -Eq 2

    # Resize to its maximum supported size

    $Partition | Resize-Partition -Size ($Partition | Get-PartitionSupportedSize).SizeMax
