Add differencing vhdx resize support in Hyper-V Driver

Registered by Lucian Petrut on 2014-05-09

Differencing VHDX images can be resized, unlike differencing VHD images. Even so, the Nova Hyper-V driver currently does not support this.This feature is required for resizing existing instances which use CoW VHDX images and also in order to resize the root disk image when spawning a new instance.

    Add differencing vhdx resize support in Hyper-V Driver

This is blocking improving the Hyper-V CI, so increasing the priority to medium --johnthetubaguy

Reviews do not have +2s and are not close to approval, so moving to juno-3. But please move this back to juno-2, should you get your patches approved in time. --johnthetubaguy 21st July 2014

Looks like this is complete as of July. -- mriedem 20140821

Yes, confirmed, this BP can be marked as completed, thanks. -- alexpilotti 20140821
