    Split/Merge VMDK File

    hanbrolo Lurker

      I have exported a virtual machine using the multi-file setting that creates a .mf, .vmdk, and .ovf file.  I need to split .vmdk file into smaller files that can then be merged back into the original file on a different machine and then deployed onto a vSphere client (ESXI 5.5) to have a duplicate of the virtual machine.


      I have been using the vmware-vdiskmanager tool in order to split and merge the file however, I am unsure how to redeploy the file since there is no OVF file for this new .vmdk.


      Any advice or tips?
