Expand Virtual Machine Hard Drive in Vmware GSX server and virtual server

In order to expand virtual machine hard drive follow the steps below.

  1. Shut down virtual machine
  2. Use the Vmware expand command vmware-vdiskmanager -x 10Gb or the GUI utility of Virtual Disk Factory http://petruska.stardock.net/software/VMware.html#DiskFactory
  3. Expand disk using utility
  4. Restart virtual machine
  5. Install partition software (http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&q=partition+software&btnG=Google+Search&meta=)
  6. Resize partition.

We used Partition Manager 8.0 from Paragon software.

* ip route destination network sub mask gateway

 

Use the following steps to configure static routes:

Determine all desired destination networks, their subnet masks, and their gateways. A gateway can be either a local interface or a next hop address that leads to the desired destination.

Enter global configuration mode.

Type the ip route command with a destination address and subnet mask followed by their corresponding gateway from Step one. Including an administrative distance is optional.

Repeat Step three for as many destination networks as were defined in Step one.

Exit global configuration mode.

Save the active configuration to NVRAM by using the copy running-config startup-config command.

Use the following steps to configure default routes:

Enter global configuration mode.

Type the ip route command with 0.0.0.0 for the destination network address and 0.0.0.0 for the subnet mask. The gateway for the default route can be either the local router interface that connects to the outside networks or the IP address of the next-hop router. In most cases, it is preferred that the IP address of the next hop router is specified.

Exit global configuration mode.

Save the active configuration to NVRAM by using the copy running-config startup-config command.

 

To remove route type:

no ip route 192.168.0.10 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.11
