Resize CHR for ESXi

The CHR image reinstalls into it’s self and it’s 128 megabytes by default.

I wanted to resize it.

Find a copy of qemu-img.  I’m on a Mac so I downloaded GNS3 and found the binary in 


./qemu-img convert -f vmdk -O raw /Users/user/Downloads/chr-6.34.1.vmdk /Users/user/Downloads/chr-6.34.1.raw

./qemu-img resize -f raw /Users/user/Downloads/chr-6.34.1.raw +1G

./qemu-img convert -f raw -O vmdk /Users/user/Downloads/chr-6.34.1.raw /Users/user/Downloads/chr-6.34.1-1G.vmdk
