Virtual Machine Properties – Disk Provisioned Size Greyed Out

In Disk Provisioning, you want to increase the disk size, but the Provisioned Size is greyed out.  Notice the Disk File name ending with *-000001.vmdk, this tells us that you have an existing snapshot.  You cannot increase the disk size in snapshot.

Now the snapshot is at the root.
