Watch on Demand



Join us for an interactive webinar session showcasing a solution to a common challenge encountered by NetScaler VPX customers. By default, the VPX image is provisioned with a fixed disk size of 20GB, which often presents difficulties for prolonged instances and upgrades. To address this issue, various workarounds, such as attaching additional disks and utilizing ADM disk clean-up jobs, have been implemented. However, with our latest enhancement, VPX now offers the flexibility to adjust disk size according to user requirements during provisioning. 

During this session, we will demonstrate 

  • Seamless process of expanding disk size on VPX instances across any hypervisor or public cloud platform.

This was very interesting, good addon to easily expand disk space of the /var partition.  I have two questions that were not fully or unanswered during the webinar.

  1. This feature is available starting with which version?  Specific 13.1 build?  14.1 only?
  2. If we already have assigned a 40GB disk on the VM in ESXi, will the extra 20GB automatically be picked up when we stop/start the VM after the firmware upgrade to the supported version?

Thanks a lot!
