Unable To Expand VMware Disk – Expand Disk Greyed Out

If you are unable to expand a VMware ESXi disk and find that the option to expand the disk is greyed out, then it’s probably because:

  • The VM is powered on
  • There are snapshots of the VM
  • The VMware disk is IDE emulated, instead of SCSI emulated

Once the VM is powered off, snapshots are deleted and the disk is presented as a SCSI disk within VMware, the option to expand the disk should no longer be greyed out.
