Replace the Virtual Disk on vCloud Air

You cannot resize a virtual disk after adding it to the Panorama virtual appliance running on VMware vCloud Air. Because the Panorama virtual appliance in Legacy mode allows only one log storage location, you must replace the virtual disk as follows to modify the log storage capacity. In Panorama mode, you can simply Add a Virtual Disk to Panorama on vCloud Air (up to the maximum of 12).
On the Panorama virtual appliance in Legacy mode, you will lose the logs on the existing disk when you replace it. For the options to preserve existing logs, see Preserve Existing Logs When Adding Storage on Panorama Virtual Appliance in Legacy Mode.
