    Hello, I have a Windows 2003 r2 x64bit enterprise cluster that has SAN disks
    that are the cluster drives.
    My customer wants to expand a SAN disk partition that is made up on 1 large
    san disk (303gb) that is carved up into 4 disks:

    L:\50gb
    T:\50gb
    X:\101gb
    Z:\101gb

    my question is can I use DISKPART to add 10gb of newly added SAN space to
    the T:\drive . I can see the partitions listed when I look via DISKPART.

    Thanks for any help.

  2. diskpart can only extend a partition within a disk if the freespace is
    just after the partition to extend.

    This limit is over in 2008, where you can even shrink while the system
    is loaded.
