Attaching a disk image to a new virtual machine

  1. Upload the image disk-1-4.vmdk to VMware host.

  2. Connect to VMWare host via ssh and transform disk image using the following command (needs to be executed from the location of uploaded image disk-1-4.vmdk):
    vmkfstools -i disk-1-4.vmdk -d zeroedthick disk_new.vmdk

After the command was processed, you will see a new disk disk_new.vmdk sized 20Gb - it needs to be attached to a newly created virtual machine, as shown on the screenshots below (in the example below the name of the disk, its size and other parameters of the virtual machine may not match).
