    In the Article itself it indicates this.

    "1. Contact Technical Support to get the Root SSH password

    Best method is to open a Web ticket requesting Root SSH with this KB ID in the Title"

    Alternatively, you could: at your own risk.

    1st Stop the virtual machine.

    2º Create a disk in the virtual system of greater size

    3rd Mount a LifeCD (Debian for example) boot it

    4th mount the two hard drives, the one from the GMS, and the one with the largest size

    5th use the dd command to clone the GMS disk to the largest one

    6th analyzes the GMS partition that belongs to storage and enlarges it with the surplus. (Resize)

    7th launch the largest disk and if everything went well, you will have a bigger partition for the GMS.

    If something did not go well, you will always have your old GSM disk.

    This requires some experience and Linux systems, but not too much.

    Check that nothing has changed with the UUID (Serial number) of MySonicwall
