    VMware Virtual Disk Manager - build 18811640.
    Usage: vmware-vdiskmanager OPTIONS <disk-name> | <mount-point>
    Offline disk manipulation utility
      Operations, only one may be specified at a time:
         -c                   : create disk.  Additional creation options must
                                be specified.  Only local virtual disks can be
         -d                   : defragment the specified virtual disk. Only
                                local virtual disks may be defragmented.
         -k                   : shrink the specified virtual disk. Only local
                                virtual disks may be shrunk.
         -n <source-disk>     : rename the specified virtual disk; need to
                                specify destination disk-name. Only local virtual
                                disks may be renamed.
         -p                   : prepare the mounted virtual disk specified by
                                the volume path for shrinking.
         -r <source-disk>     : convert the specified disk; need to specify
                                destination disk-type.  For local destination disks
                                the disk type must be specified.
         -x <new-capacity>    : expand the disk to the specified capacity. Only
                                local virtual disks may be expanded.
         -R                   : check a sparse virtual disk for consistency and attempt
                                to repair any errors.
         -e                   : check for disk chain consistency.
         -D                   : make disk deletable.  This should only be used on disks
                                that have been copied from another product.
         -U                   : delete/unlink a single disk link.
      Other Options:
         -q                   : do not log messages
      Additional options for create and convert:
         -a <adapter>         : (for use with -c only) adapter type
                                (ide, buslogic, lsilogic). Pass lsilogic for other adapter types.
         -s <size>            : capacity of the virtual disk
         -t <disk-type>       : disk type id
         -z <level>           : compression level for -t 5. Valid range: [0,9]
                                Default: 1
      Disk types:
          0                   : single growable virtual disk
          1                   : growable virtual disk split into multiple files
          2                   : preallocated virtual disk
          3                   : preallocated virtual disk split into multiple files
          4                   : preallocated ESX-type virtual disk
          5                   : compressed disk optimized for streaming
          6                   : thin provisioned virtual disk - ESX 3.x and above
         The capacity can be specified in sectors, KB, MB or GB.
         The acceptable ranges:
                               ide/scsi adapter : [1MB, 8192.0GB]
                               buslogic adapter : [1MB, 2040.0GB]
            ex 1: vmware-vdiskmanager -c -s 850MB -a ide -t 0 myIdeDisk.vmdk
            ex 2: vmware-vdiskmanager -d myDisk.vmdk
            ex 3: vmware-vdiskmanager -r sourceDisk.vmdk -t 0 destinationDisk.vmdk
            ex 4: vmware-vdiskmanager -x 36GB myDisk.vmdk
            ex 5: vmware-vdiskmanager -n sourceName.vmdk destinationName.vmdk
            ex 6: vmware-vdiskmanager -k myDisk.vmdk
            ex 7: vmware-vdiskmanager -p <mount-point>
                  (A virtual disk first needs to be mounted at <mount-point>)
  3. 参考最后的example3,更改对应的原vmdk,以及最终输出的vmdk路径。
    ./vmware-vdiskmanager -r sourceDisk.vmdk -t 0 destinationDisk.vmdk
  4. 最终成果
    ➜  Library ./vmware-vdiskmanager -r /<Your_Source_Path>/win2k3.vmdk -t 0 /<Your_Dest_Path>/win2k3.vmdk
    Creating disk '<Your_Dest_Path>/win2k3.vmdk'
      Convert: 100% done.
    Virtual disk conversion successful.
