This article provides information on how to increase the disk size for Kerio Control installed in the Hyper-V environment.
Kerio Control treats the VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) as a physical drive, and it cannot extend the space on its own in the Hyper-V environment.
However, it is possible to increase the space from Hyper-V using the steps below:
- Power off the Kerio Control Virtual Machine (VM).
- In the Hyper-V Manager, right-click the Kerio Control (VM) and select Settings:
- Select the Hard Drive that you want to expand and click on Edit: TODO Add note about "Edit" being unavailable if Checkpoint/s exist
- Click on Choose Action, select the Expand option, and click Next:
- Select Extend (or Expand) on the Next menu.
Note: This procedure increases the maximum disk size of the VHD, and will not show any change in the Kerio Control admin portal. As this is a dynamic disk it will expand as required until it reaches the maximum disk size configured via the process in this KB. If you want to confirm that the maximum disk space has indeed increased to the newly configured value, select the Kerio Control VM and then click Inspect Disk on the right .
