How to get CCM 6 to recognize additional hardware

Unanswered Question
Sep 14th, 2010

Doing an off line upgrade of CCM 6 ==> CCM 8 in on VMWare prepatory to going on UCS.

The existing image of CCM 6 had a single 80 gig drive.  When attempting to upgrade to v8, it's failing because it wants two drives larger than 72 gig.  I added a second drive, but for whatever reason, the CCM 8 installer isn't recognizing it's there.

What needs to be done to get CCM 6 to recognize that another drive was added?

I have this problem too.

Hi Clifford

Getting the OS to recognise the hardware would be one thing, but getting the CCM app reconfigured to use the new space for whatever it would if you had installed it on a server with two RAID arrays would be another...

Basically what you should do is follow the same path you would if you were migrating a physical server to a new spec:

1) Back it up

2) Redeploy the OS and CCM from media on the new spec VM

3) Restore the backup

Yeah, that's been the backup plan all along.

Was trying to avoid having to do that.  Seems rather silly given that the installer should REALLY be looking at what's available rather than the manifest of what's configured.

Hi Clifford

It's not so difficult to do; and the installer (as I understand it) just installs a new copy of the OS and apps to the existing 'inactive' partition. As the 'active' partition is running during that process I guess repartitioning could get hairy and moving mounted/active partitions and data may be problematic.
