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.

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.
Excessive quoting is useless and annoying. If you use it, please consider if you could do without it.

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