Sorry, just to make sure I understand you... what you want to make is increase the disks /dev/sda3 e /dev/sda1 ? If yes, look at the virtual machine settings for virtual hard disk with sizes ~11GB and ~128MB? Anyway, what is the purpose for extend that disks ? Because if you're running out of space you should first identify the reason. And let me know the exact version of your vCenter Server Appliance.

you can use

lsblk

Open in new window


to show the mappings to the disks.

lsscsi

Open in new window


and if you check this article, you can see the relationships between VMDKS (we don't use VHDs in VMware vSphere)

http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2015/03/multiple-vmdks-in-vcsa-6-0.html

and yes the disks do get full, and need expanding.
