I installed a windows server 2022 to openstack using cloudinit to sysprep. Image gets created but drive doesn't extend. I built it with a 50 gb drive, create instance with 100 gb drive and when system comes up on 50 gb shows. If I look at the diskmanager the other 50 gb is there but I can't extend it - its greyed out. If someone could help out that would be great.

Can you please share the contents of the logs files present in "C:\Program Files\Cloudbase Solutions\Cloudbase-Init\log\" ?

Also, if you cannot extend the partition from diskmanager, cloudbase-init will not be able to extend it in most of the cases.

This looks like a hardware issue. Can you give more information about the hypervisor platform and version used, virtio drivers (if it is the case)?

Thank you.

Hello Avladu - sorry I was pulled from this project so I was not able to get to this. I am back on the project now. I will get the logs - have to build another instance of it to get you that information as I have deleted all my other images.

Hyper-Visors used to create image was MS hyper-v, Vmware, KMV. I then upload to openstack. I am using the latest version of virtio drivers.
