I am trying to install Vmware Data protection in a LAB, but I do not have enough disk space required by the VDP appliance.
since it is a LAB,  is there a work around it ?

Thanks

Have you tried the smallest appliance at 0.5GB?

If not there is not really a workaround, unless you can change the size of the original OVFs before importing.

You could import into VMware Workstation, and then convert using VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.5, and create a smaller disk.

However, we've not tried the above, and uncertain if the Appliance would have filesystem issues.

HOW TO:  P2V, V2V for FREE - VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.5
