BTW, if help is required, I can help with the above, by repackaging the tar's and sending them to someone at NetApp.

So, I've answered question #2. When you follow the VMware KB and use the vmkfstools -U/-E command to delete and rename the vmdk's, the XXX-s99.vmdk files go away. Neat trick.

I take the easy way out, and just delete that whole VMDK and create a new one. As long as you do it before the first power on, the blank vmdk will get formatted before it creates the simdisks. Just be careful to put it on the IDE port.
