    unable to extend a .vmdk - Esxi 6.7 U1

    speks Lurker

      Hi Folks,

       

       

       

      Wonder if anyone can help - This issue has been driving me nuts for a while  - I have imported a .vmdk and attached to new Virtual machine.

      When I try to reconfigure, I get the following error 'Enter a disk size which is larger than its original capacity'

       

      So, I increase the size of the disk in the GUI.. click save and then get another error message

      "Failed to reconfigure virtual machine xxx-yyy. Invalid operation for device '3"

       

       

      The only Solution online points to snapshots - I don't have any.  And I had this issue with running ESXi 6.5 as well.

      Any ideas on how to get around this will be greatly appreciated - This a homelab btw.

       

      Thanks!
