VMware Server: Convert Fixed Disk-images to Growable

Quick tip if you ever want to convert from a fixed disk image to an expandable one then the following command should do it:

sudo vmware-vdiskmanager -r source.vmdk -t 0 expandable.vmdk

Just replace "source" and "expandable" with your disk image file names. For more on what vmware-vdiskmanager can do for you type vmware-vdiskmanager -h
