I'm running into a little bit of a problem.

I want to start kicking off Virtual Machines for our clients to try. We have the ESXi system running great, now.

The VM templates import just fine; zero problems.

How the heck do you expand the Workspace? After the 5 gigs, or 10 gigs, or whatever gigs you start with? Editing the VM to give it more space is no problem, but every single tool I have thrown at this thing crashes out, and is unable to expand the file-system correctly.

I can use the GPARTd iso OK, but get a <-63 cyl error of some type. The partition can't be expanded.

Thrown loads of Windows partition tool ISO's at it - they either don't recognize EXT3 or LILO.

All the other Linux ISO's for partition resizers just don't work, or don't recognize the VMware SCSI disks.

I even attempted to enter maintenance mode and load in Webmin - to maybe just add a new VM disk and drop in another partition to the OS - and edit the workstation.cfg manually. No joy - the installed Kerio firewall product goes nuts and blocks port 10000.

I really don't want to fool around with Windows. Plus there are licensing issues with cloning the template for separate clients.

I would buy a decent tool like Paragon if I knew it would work the way I want.

I'm just surprised there doesn't seem to be a way to expand the Data Store under the VM image. Is no one else using this? It seems to be a really easy way to kick on Workspace installs.

Any ideas welcome! I really want to stay away from Windows, even though I could expand the file-system in a heartbeat. Don't want the VM management issues...
