Can I use ResizeVMVolume on ELM VM?

Can I use ResizeVMVolume on ELM VM to enlarge data disk that has ELMDB and raw data? Not the sda or disk0 OS disk?

Internal team increased size for disk 1 (contains ELMDB and storage pool), but ELM can't detect in storage device, VM Local tab. 

I know the proper way is to add new space as an additional disk, no on top of another one.

Correct, at this point in time the ResizeVmVolume script does not resize additional ELM disks.  Please raise a product idea - this will help to show the customer need for this improvement to the script.
