Windows 2008 Cluster – Extend Volume option greyed out!

From time to time, volume sizes have to be increased to allow for data growth and today is no exception. If your increasing the storage on a Windows 2008 SQL cluster, you may find the following information useful.

After I increased the storage presented from the SAN to the host (using the SAN tools) and completed a rescan, the extend volume option greyed out.

Disk Management

After a little research, I found diskpart provided a quick answer to my problem. (Remember to backup your data.)
