VMware - Increase boot disk size
Posted on 2011-10-17
I know this question has been asked many times before but i have a specific question around the use of GPart with server 2008.
I have a number of VMware guest servers (2003 and 2008) that i need to increase the C:
I have a esxi 3.5 test server that im going to test the process on a 2008 machine. Ive already come up against a problem. WIth the settings of the VM it has been allocated 20gb the maximum size has been set to 45gb when i boot to the gpart application there is no allocated disk available to increase the size of the disk. Im not entirely sure how i create more disk space to allow me to use gpart to increase the disk???
DO i have to increase the vmdk file? if so how do i do this?
