Shrink VMware disk to contents size (for VMware Workstation users)

  • When you using dynamically growing disk in VMware then they grow, but don't reduce its size when you delete files in the virtual machine.
  • That's only interesting when you are using VMware Workstation in the server versions the default is a full allocated disk.

Enable SSH on ESXi 4.1

  • In the past, it was possible to enable ssh by typing “unsupported”, then you get a terminal and could activate the ssh-server.
  • With ESXi 4.1 “unsupported” is unsupported.

Clone VM on ESXi 4.1

  • Cloning a Virtual Machine (VM) in ESXi without using VMware vSphere doesn't work because in the vSphere Client, which can be also used to manage the ESXi, you have no possibility to do this.
