Re: [Xen-users] Online resizing disk Windows Dom U


online resize of a mapped disk has never worked in Xen3.
I think there used to be a xm vbd-resize back on Xen2, but that 's so
long ago that I'm not even sure.

It's not currently possible, period.

You'll be better off mapping new disks (that works on-line) and using
dynamic disks on the windows side, so you can do the extension in
Windows Logical disk manager.

Sorry about the bad news,

the purpose of libvirt is to provide an abstraction layer hiding all
xen features added since 2006 until they were finally understood and
copied by the kvm devs.
