Updating Storage Across all User Sessions

    1. Go to Cloud Desktops > RD Collection Pools

    2. Change the Boot Disk Size in the Autoscale configuration and then click save.

      3. Log into each user session server and allocate the added storage. You can accomplish that by following this guide.

Updating Storage to a Single User Session Server

  1. Disable Autoscale

      Go to Cloud Desktops > RD Collections Pools > Disable Autoscale

     Click save after disabling autoscale.

     2. Go to Cloud Manager > VM instances
Select the instance that you want upgrade the storage for and click edit.

          Click on the Disk Size(GB) that you currently have, edit the size the of the storage and then press save.      

Note: Adding more storage makes it available to the disk but doesn't add it to the volume. Make sure that after changing the disk size you extend the volume in the VM instance (in Disk management)

Google currently doesn't allow you to remove additional storage once allocated, even if you haven't expanded the disk, so always be sure you're adding the correct amount of space to the right disk. 

To add a new disk, define the Disk size and Disk Type first and then click on the + sign on the right to add the disk to the VM instance.

After increasing the storage or adding a disk a task is created in itopia Tasks module to remind you to apply the changes in the VM instance. After you mark the task as complete, the VM instance status will change from Pending to Ready.

Important: When allocating drive space, keep in mind that due to Windows limitations, you cannot expand the boot disk to more than 2 TB.

3. Enable Autoscale again

Go to Cloud Desktops > RD Collections Pools > Enable Autoscale
