How-to add a virtual disk to VM using vss-cli

(Optional) Depending on a setup/installation, we might want to activate a specific virtual environment:

. ~/venvs/vsscliENV4/bin/activate

Search for VM uuid by name:

(vsscliENV)$ vss-cli compute vm ls -f name casx2 uuid name ------------------------------------ ------------------ <uuid> 1306P-arborexcasx2

Get the current disks:

$ vss-cli compute vm get <uuid-or-vmname> Uuid : <uuid> Label : Hard disk 1 Capacity Gb : 300 Label : Hard disk 2 Capacity Gb : 3

Add 10GB disk


For more information, please refer to Manage Virtual Disks from the VSS CLI official documentation site.
