First you need to shrink your filesystem with "resize2fs".
But use at your own risk. Make sure you have a backup of your data!
After shrinking the filesystem you need to shrink your partition(s) - that could be done with "fdisk" oder "cfdisk" or any GUI tool like gParted.
Hope to help,
Hey, thanks for the reply. Sorry for the delay, never got a notification that there was a reply.
Ok cool, I'll check out those links you supplied and give it a try.
So I was finally able to give this a try today.
I was able to boot the VM to a Gparted Live CD/ISO and run the resize2fs command and resized the filesystem to 60 GB. And then after that I used Gparted to resize the partition to 60 GB.
What do I need to do now to resize the VM's files on my Host OS? Do I use the v2v converter?
This is what the Standalone Converter shows for my VM's Disk details:
After searching all around and not finding a way to do this after the VM was already created, I decided to re-run the Physical to Virtual conversion again, because when doing P2V, even with Linux, you DO have the ability to modify Volumes and Sizes. Whereas when attempting V2V with the Converter, this was not possible with a Linux guest.
So the solution was to re-run VMWare Standalone Converter of my Powered-On, physical Linux machine (*P2V), and editing the Volumes during that step prior to the conversion.
