I do like this:
DHCP gives IPs
Second disk is resized to space needed while system stays on minimally sized disk.

Short:
Dont use LVM
Longer:
1 partition per disk (like /opt /var/cache etc) can be resized over umount/mount
Very long:
1 LVM partition per disk (this is not resizable, no need to waste time trying) then add another disk, add new LVM partition. add that to LVM and resize logical volumes on the fly.
vmware has limit of 60-something disks for vm, so you have room to grow.
