  • 1.  V2V Reduce Disk

    Posted May 04, 2014 08:11 AM

    Hi, I perform Virtual to Virtual migration ( vmware 5.0 to vmware 5.1)

    I would like to reduce the disk capacity of VMs, but vcenter converter doesn't had this feature like physical 2 virtual migration

    I would like to know how I can do it.

    Hello,

    in Data to Copy section you should chose "Select Volumes to Copy" for Data copy type ... then you can set appropriate size for your disks.

    Dear vNEX, thanks for your reply

    so do I need to download the VMs files to my PC & then convert the files with reducing the VMDK files.

    Best Regards
