How to Increase Disk and Volume Size on a VMware Virtual Appliance



Should you find that you’re running low on disk space on one of your volumes, SSH into the appliance and run the following commands:

  1. shell.set –enabled true (to enable shell access if not already enabled)
  2. df -h (to determine which volume is running low in disk space)
  3. Increase the disk size
  4. vpxd_servicecfg storage lvm autogrow (to automatically expand all volumes that have additional disk space available.)
