I want to install VDP on the LAB. I wonder how much disk space I need in order to get VDP installed.

Thank you

Minimum 0f 500GB with the smallest VDP appliance
Appliance sizes are 2TB, 1TB and the smallest 0.5TB or 500GB.

So ensure you have that space as a datastore.

A minimum of 500GB, with the smallest VDP appliance.

It's very unlikely you will be able to install, unless you change change the size.

How do you change the size?

do you mean change the size of the disk the VDP will be installed on...or there is a tweak to change it for instance from 0.5T to 5 GB ?

You would have to, import into a system which has 500GB available, and then use VMware Converter, to copy and shrink the size.....(VMware do not support this!)
