In order to merge split vmdk files into one, you need to use the vmware-vdiskmanager command. However, this is only available if you have VMware Fusion or VMware Workstation installed. VMware Player doesn’t have this.
Once downloaded, extract and rename
vmware-vdiskmanager.exe and copy or move to the directory where VMware Player is installed. For instance
C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player
In order to merge vmdk files, open a Command Prompt and CD to the directory where the vmdk files are located. For instance
Assume you have the following vmdk files :
To merge them into one single vmdk file, use the following command:
C:\VMWareImages\MyImage>"\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player\vmware-vdiskmanager.exe" -r "MyImage.vmdk" -t 0 MyNewImage.vmdk
The new vmdk file will then be created:
Creating disk 'MyNewImage.vmdk'
Convert: 41% done.
Once done, either rename the original vmdk files or move them to a different directory. Finally rename
MyImage.vmdk and you’re all set.
