Hi,

Theoretically.

I have one machine with one snapshot. The author of that VM created 2GB
slices of vdisk.
Now, when I tried to convert into a fresh (consolidated), vdisk image, I got
an error from vmware-vdiskmanager.
After I googled around, I found that, this is a bug (probably feature),
which exists for months.

Seems, there is a workaround: use old vdiskmanager.

Now I am getting angry about these stupid problems what vmware produces.

Even lot of people use it without problems, my personal opinion, vmware
sucks.
I am angry very much, I have to eat something and drink blood..............

Cheers,
István
