I have a physical disk with a small (60GB) partition containing my guest OS. The physical disk also contains a large (240GB) block of unpartitioned space. My vmdk is defined as a physical "individual partition".
I want to convert the source physical "individual partition" vmdk into a local (file-based) vmdk. The command -
vmware-vdiskmanager -r sourcevmdk targetvmdk -t 2
creates a 300GB vmdk that includes both the desired 60GB "individual partition" and the 240GB of useless unpartitioned space !
How can I create a local vmdk with just the individual partition?
