I want to copy a VMware Workstation 8 VM to a ESXi 4.1.0 Server and reduce the maximum disk size. My source VM has a size of 1.5 GB, the disk space is NOT preallocated and the maximum size is 100GB.
If I upload the vm with VMware workstation 8, the target vm in ESXi has a hard disk with 100GB preallocted disk space. This cannot be changed with VMWare cvSphere Client 4.0.1
How can I copy/move the vm and keep disk space NOT preallocated and reduce the maximum disk size to 20GB? I tried to reduce the maximum size on the source vm, but shinking is only reducing the current size of the hard disk.
