How do you downsize/resize a vhd file for use with Hyper-V?
Posted on 2011-03-23
Hi, I am using Disk2VHD to virtualize a couple of my existing physical servers for testing purposes at this time. I can get the servers converted to a .vhd file, but when I inspect the disk file, it says it is dynamic and set to for 223GB. I would like to resize it to about 80GB max.
The physical server is Server 2003 R2 running SharePoint Services 3.0 with Internal Database.
I have tried VHDResizer and it will only downsize it to about half the original 223GB. So, I was wondering what is your procedure or recommended tools to accomplish this task?
I know more admins must have run across this issue or maybe I am doing something wrong.
Thanks in advance.
