    When I run

    config.vm.provider "parallels" do |prl|
    prl.customize ["set", :id, "--device-set=hdd0", "--size=150G"]

    I get the following error:

    A customization command failed:

    ["set", :id, "--device-set=hdd0", "--size=150G", "--type=plain"]

    The following error was experienced:

    #<VagrantPlugins::parallels::Errors::ExecutionError: There was an error while command execution. The command and stderr is shown below.

    Command: ["/usr/local/bin/prlctl", "set", "bd344729-d7f1-4566-b672-c601b9c2c997", "--device-set=hdd0", "--size=150G", "--type=plain"]

    Stderr: Failed to resize: Unable to resize this hard disk. Its file system might be corrupted. Please try to start the virtual machine and check the file system for errors. Or you can resize the hard disk without resizing the file system and then resize it using the tools of the guest operating system.
    Failed to configure the virtual machine.

    I think what is happening is that it is resizing the disk and then trying to extend the partition in one go which it can't do as I am using a linux guest. Does anybody know how I can resize a disk using a Vagrantfile and the Parallels vagrant provisioner?

    Hi Swati thanks. It says how to do it via the Parallels GUI but since I am trying to find out how to do it with the Parallels provider for vagrant the article isn't very useful in this case.

    James, for this you should use option "--no-fs-resize" in prlctl command.
