Virtual Hard disk for Indexer


Hello Splunkers

I have an Indexer Cluster setup on Azure(Splunk Enterprise) Platform. My indexer VM instance has 100GB of Hard Disk. My question is how can I use VHD/Network Attached disk so that I can store the logs and query them on VHD.
Pls note I am using Splunk Enterprise version.

This is really not a Splunk question. Microsoft's support site gives the answer to this with just a bit of Googling.

From Splunk's viewpoint this is just like any other disk that it could see/use. If the OS can see it and use it, you can install Splunk onto it, or use it for your data, or ... do anything else with it that you want.
