ESXi and vmdk dude image. / disk too small.

Mon Dec 02, 2019 3:40 pm

Hi guys.
Im runing dude on vmware using vmdk image.
Problem is that virtual machine disk is very small.
I asigned 16gb but system is using 65Mb.
Is it possible to take all disk space ? Can you share some docs about doing it ?
Regads.
Leandro.

You can add second virtual disk and configure Dude to use that. But CHR should also automatically (on boot) expand system partition if there's free space on device. I didn't try it lately, but it did work for me in the past.
People who quote full posts should be spanked with ethernet cable. Some exceptions for multi-topic threads may apply.

Does the VM in the esxi options use thin or thick provisioning ?
It case it is thin, then only the capacity needed is used...
