Extending the Diskspaceo linux VM
Posted on 2013-01-17
all, i have a RHEL 5 VM with two disks, disk1=25G (os) and disk2=100G (Data)
I am running really low on disk2 and need to increase by another 50G at least.
I am running esx 3.5 for the production environment. I've increased disk space in windows 2003 by right clicking vm-->Edit Settings, selecting disk and type a new value in there.
I then use the GParted iso to boot off the vm and increase the disk to it's new size. Windows 2008 a lot simpler as well, but nerver had to do a Linux vm.
Can i do the same as it a win2003 server? Can i use the GParted CD to increase the disk?
