    v2v conversion with no space on datastore..

    that99thguy Lurker

      Hi all --


      I need to resize/shrink a guest disk (Win2008r2 disk from 800gb to 300gb) and I've read that there is reasonable success using a v2v conversion (with the vCenter Standalone Converter), but my concern is that I only have 50gb free on that host's datastore.


      Would I be able to download/move the vm folder and files to my local machine and convert it from my local up to the esxi host?  If not, what other options are there? 


      Thanks in advance
