Goal

Provide the instructions on how to grow a filesystem or LUN from the Pillar Axiom Storage Services Manager


"It is required to check OS limitations and procedures to resize LUN at OS level.

For example Windows has limitation for LUNs with MBR label over 2T. It is necessary to use GPT if the LUN size will be over 2T after resizing. Master boot record (MBR) disks use the standard BIOS partition table. GUID partition table (GPT) disks use unified extensible firmware interface (UEFI). One advantage of GPT disks is that you can have more than four partitions on each disk. GPT is also required for disks larger than 2 terabytes. But this conversion will destroy current data on disk. You need to take backup and restore after increasing the LUN size."
