You add disk to vRealize Operations Manager Linux or Windows nodes when space for storing the collected data runs low.

The following example is for a Linux system. The Windows process is similar, but with Windows characteristics such as backward slashes instead of forward slashes.

1

Add a new disk to the system, and partition and format the disk as needed.

2

Use the vRealize Operations Manager administration interface to take the cluster offline.

3

Stop the vmware-casa service.

4

Move the contents of /storage/db into a directory on the new disk.

5

Create a symbolic link from the new directory back to /storage/db, so that /storage/db now references the new disk.

6

Start the vmware-casa service.

7

Bring the cluster online.
