i would like to increase the disk space for Vmware based cisco ise to 600gb.

Increasing the raw disk space is fine on VMware, but how will the ISE or Linux OS modify the partition to recognise the extra disk space

This will not work. The best thing to do is to take a backup of your ISE configuration on an ftp server and then rebuild the environment.

And what will happen if you have it lincensed? Will you need to create a new license file? or the PID comes with the backup file?

You may need to build the new ACS instance and have the licenses rehosted. I cant remember if the serial number of the virtual machine is needed when licensing ACS. If the serial number isnt needed, then yes you should be able to restore the database on the new environment.

Refreshing an old thread, but I was faced with this recently.

If you're prepared to roll up your sleeves with Linux, I've figured out a procedure. In my case I couldn't rehost the license since it's an NFR version - and yes Tarik is correct a restore doesn't bring in the license.

Some instructions here.
