Hi All,


New here so I’m not sure this is the right place.  Is there playbook or way to automate disk expansion?  Can it expand the disk then trigger powershell to expand in the vm? 


Thank you,

Hello @ke_dkropp 
Need to look around on how to expand the disk in the VM, but you can update the virtual disk by using the API.

As of now , we dont have any default playbook in Prism Pro X-Play for vm disk add.

However you can create a custom playbook for the same.

Playbook → Manual trigger → Entity : VM → Rest API [to add disk to selected vm. You need to script that] → Powershell/SSH [to update disk in OS

With both PC and PE on 5.17 AOS version and greater, we can now use Playbooks to expand the VM disk size automatically.
