I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and trying to expand size allocated to Linux virtual machine, but I'm not able to find
vmware-vdiskmanager or any package that installs
vmware-vdiskmanager. Can anyone please tell me how to install
vmware-vdiskmanager or link to download it...?
As far I as know
You can use the 32bit version available for download here on kb.vmware.com from the Attachments section.
this will automate the installation:
To use it run for example compress a vm with this command:
The disk manager download suggested by Sylvain is dependent on OpenSSL. If you don't have it installed you will get an error message as follows:
OpenSSL is available from here: http://www.openssl.org/community/binaries.html
Downloading and installing OpenSSL resolves this issue.
Note: I have realised that the OpenSSL dlls are present in the VMware Player installation directory. If the tool is copied into the VMware player directory and executed from there the installation of OpenSSL is unnecessary.
