Absolutely. At this stage it has nothing to do with Citrix. You just create a 
new partition/volume in Windows Disk Manager and give it the appropriate letter.

However, it's been years since I've done that hardware mirror thing. There used 
to be a limitation where the RAID array would not see the extra space. Ie. 
Whilst you could put in larger disks and mirror them, the extra space is not 
useable. Not sure if that is still an issue in this modern era???

Cheers,
Jeremy.

Subject: [THIN] Adding a new drive to a remapped Citrix server

Weve got a bunch of Citrix servers that we need to add extra disk space to, so 
the plan is to swap out the 72gb disks for larger disks on the Raid 1 blades 
one by one, and let the hardware mirror rebuild, thereby leaving a good chunck 
of free space.

We already have the partitions remapped via Xenapp to M: N: and O:, the 
question is, will Citrix support adding a new partition, e.g. P: without it 
being mapped via the Citrix remapping utility. Im sure it will work ok as were 
only using the new partition for some local application logging, but would 
Citrix kick up a fuss and say the server isnt supported under that config?

Thanks

Andy
