Hi,

my ZCS 7.1.4 is running out of space. It is 89% used now (of 240 GB).
ZCS running as VM on ESXi 5.0.
Code:
root@zimbra:# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 268.4 GB, 268435456000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 32635 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0006f39d

First, I am more windows guy and mostly copy-paste Linux admin with dozen google search results opened for each Linux command.
Now as I understand, I have 2 options:
a.) Add some 200 GB to existing disk via VMWare Client, then extend LVM partition to use additional space.
b.) Add 200 GB virtual disk to this virtual machine, and add additional storage to Zimbra, one partition for index and one for store.

Which is the best to go for reliability, performance, and stability?
