How to add additional disk space on Esxi VM series ?

L2 Linker



The VM-Series Deployment Guide says we can add additional disk space of 40GB to 2TB for logging

Does anyone know how to do that in production?

You'll need to add an additional disk of 2TB (or less) to the VM and then reboot the appliance, the reboot process will mount the second disk as a logging partition

Thank you!

I tried to add an additional disk of 16G to the VM and then reboot this appliance.

But I can not log-in the appliance and the console shows "Cache data unavailable" after reboot.


Few minutes later, It's can be log-in and working. But I can not see the new disk or new partition by "show system disk-space" or "show system logdb-quota".


My VM-100 already upgraded to version 7.0.4.


Hi Neil,


Do you see the additional disk space now in Web GUI ?

Device > Setup > Management > Logging and Reporting Settigs. 

You may want to open a support case to have that looked at, it should work simply by adding a fresh disk and rebooting the appliance
