Can I expand ISCSI HBA connected to XenServer 6.0.2 online ?

Yes you can and CTX 120865 works like a charm. Make sure from the storage system the lun has been expanded to the desire size. Now ensure all the VM's on that lun is power off to be on safer side.  Below example where SR is expanded from 1 TB to 2TB

1. Run the xe sr-list and note down the UUID for the SR as shown below


2. Now perform the following steps as shown below. Unplug/Replug/resize/rescan


3. Xencenter will show the correct size of SR now. Power on all the VM’s

This does not seem to work with XenServer 6.5 build 70446c. I ended up forgetting the SR and reattaching it. Hope Citrix can fix this.
