Hi there,

I just setup a (Citrix) XenServer, and had a Windows 2003 server guest, but by default the system made the hard drive 8GB (tiny). I am just learning Xen, so I missed the setting when creating.

How are others going about expanding hard drive space on Windows guests?

I mean linux would be easy, just use the tools, and expand LVM, however since this is a windows guest......

Just wanted to find out what the community is doing prior to trying some 3rd party partitioning tool that supports nondestructive expanding.
