I want to know how do we increase the space of C:\ while conversion of a physical to virtual server?
Ex: i have a 8 GB C:\ (physical server). I want to convert this to a virtual server with 16GB of C:\. Is this possible and if yes, how?
you can do that using VMware Converter Enteprise in a cold migration. You have to boot your server with VMware Enterprise Converter CD and when the server disks were detected you can choose the resize option and readjust to a new size you want by typing MB ou GB values.
VMWare converter will do this, as has been mentioned. It doesn't take long, all it does is create extra unused space in the .vmdk when it is created. Same result as if you cloned a 20GB Hard Drive over to a 40GB Hard Drive using Ghost or Partition Magic, or something like that.
