I have a big file (220G) I would like to move from a virtual machine to its host.
The file is actually another virtual machine's disk file.
for other smaller files, I would have done that with a simple scp command moving them accros the network, but this is very slow (around 7 MB/s)
It is even more frustrating when you think about the fact the file is just moving on the same hard drive trough the network, that's just so inefficient.
How can I copy (or simply move) this single file out of this virtual server to the physical server? Using VMware vsphere (free edition)?
