I have deleted one of my VMs but without detaching or making a snapshot of the storage attached to it. Is it possible to assign the same storage to a new VM? I was running CentOS 7 on the old one. In the past I have created a new disk with about 1Tb of data and then I have created probably 4 or 5 partitions (/home, /root, /boot, swap and /var). I only want to preserve the /home partition. Is it possible to allocate the same virtual disk to the new VM and how to do that? I am using vsPhere Client 5.5. What are these Virtual Device nodes? Are they the individual partitions? Also when I go to the datastore browser I see a lot of vmdk's is there a way to attach these vmdks to the the new VM and check them. I just presume I can delete some of them to free some space.
Thanks in advance for the help.
