Review request for cloudstack, mice xia and Marcus Sorensen.


changed the error message to "VMware doesn't support shrinking volume from size..."


add vmware resizeVolume support

This addresses bug CLOUDSTACK-644.

Diffs (updated)

  server/src/com/cloud/storage/ 07f4d8a 



Start a vm using builtin template [CentOS 5.3(64-bit) no GUI (vSphere)].
Attach two data volumes, one made by disk_offering "Small", another made by "Custom".
Try to resize the two volumes when vm in running or stopped state.
After the api finished resize the volume, we found the size changed in the vSphere Client
while the size in system is not changed. Reboot the vm and use fdisk to check the disk size,
we found the size is changed.

If we try to shrink the volume, the vsphere will throw an exception, I add a check in the
code before resize volume. If the newSize is smaller, it will return false.
