I'm currently testing Alfresco with the bitnami virtual machine (from here: http://bitnami.com/stack/alfresco).
The VM is run by VMWware Player.
I wanted to increase the size of the virtual disk and did that with the vddk tools:
vmware-vdiskmanager -x 15Gb nameofvm.vmdk
Now, VMWare-Player shows me the "Maximum size: 15 GB" for the hard disk,
but after rebooting the virtual machine, I still got this result (same as before I increased disk size):
Filesystem type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted On
/dev/sda1 ext4 3.9G 2.1G 1.7G 56% /
udev devtmpfs 243M 4.0K 243M 1% /dev
tmpfs tmpfs 99M 200K 99M 1% /run
none tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock
none tmpfs 246M 0 246M 0% /run/shm
(sorry for the bad formatting, I wanted to upload an image but I am not allowed yet, karma missing)
So how can I really get more available space on my /dev/sda1 "drive"?
