Extend a Partition on Windows Server 2003

I know most of you have done this time and time again but I always forget the steps on how to extend a partition on Windows Server 2003. Now I can always just take a look here to remind me what I need to do. 

  1. At a command prompt, type diskpart
  2. Type list volume to display the existing volumes on the computer
  3. Type Select volume # where volume number is number of the volume that you want to extend.
  4. Type extend to extend the partition the remaining free space

This method works great if the storage is local or stored on SAN like an HP EVA
