I have a guest Windows Server 2012 R2 on a VMware Workstation 15.5.2 for Linux (CentOS 6.10) host with a 1.5TB drive which refuses to get split up into smaller VMDKs. Smaller VMDKs will be faster to backup.
The command line I am using is:
vmware-vdiskmanager -r /vms/KNDSWin2012/Kern2G.vmdk -t 1 -s 2GB /vms/KNDSWin2012/K2G.vmdk
I have used several other variations of this none of which have output multiple 2GB VMDKs. Has anyone successfully split a large VMDK into multiple smaller VMDKs successfully using vmware-vdiskmanager?
