Adding vmx file entry

Jump to solution

If I add an entry to a vmx file such as Get-VM | New-AdvancedSetting -Name "isolation.tools.diskShrink.disable" -value $true,

will this require a reboot of the VM to take affect?

William has an interesting workaround using vMotion to cause the changes to go into effect without needing a reboot (have a read of the last paragraph)
