I have made a mistake and created a VM (win 200 with 1MB block size. My VM is stored in a datastore that is 420 GB but due to the block size the max VM size is 256GB. When trying to create a snapshot i get an error, I have managed to setup a new ESX server with 4mb block size allowing for larger VMs. When transfering the vmdk file from my old vm to the new store I would like to also increase size of my vmdk. Is this possible to do this? Please note that I run the free version of ESXI. I have followed the following method to transfer the VM. Using the datastore browser (shut down the vm first) I downloaded the VM to a local HDD, created an new VM using a custom configuration and used the existing VMDK to create the VM. In the wizard I am not give the option to increase the vmdk file. Is this possible? Is there any way I can accomplish this?
