comment Using clonezilla to move data to a smaller disk on vmware
worked after I manually configured the static ip to a different ip, then repeated the cloning process to set it back up on the original ip. Ran into some random issues, like having to enable the root account in Ubuntu to connect to the powered on machine, and then needing to run converter as administrator on my local win 7, but it worked in the end.

comment Using clonezilla to move data to a smaller disk on vmware
Also I have to request IPs from the sys admin that maintains the servers that host my host, and then manually assign static IPs upon configuration of each machine. I was able to get around the IP conflict by copying the machine when it was powered off. But this means I was unable to adjust the size of the disk in the process... Also my test was a 16GB disk, the 500 GB disk will take 9 hours to copy, and I can't have the machine down that long. Is there a way to shrink the disk size while the machine is on?

I attempted a copy with converter and it failed because my IPs have to be statically assigned, is there a way around this?
