From inside “C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation” (Windows default installation location), or wherever your installation is on Linux or Windows:
vmware-vdiskmanager.exe -r 'source.vmdk' -t 5 'destination.vmdk_stream.vmdk'
‘-t 5’ is where you specify the stream-optimized format for example, here are all available types:
0 : single growable virtual disk
1 : growable virtual disk split into multiple files
2 : preallocated virtual disk
3 : preallocated virtual disk split into multiple files
4 : preallocated ESX-type virtual disk
5 : compressed disk optimized for streaming
6 : thin provisioned virtual disk – ESX 3.x and above
The default web server identification string of your OpenVPN Server can be one way to identify it in automated vulnerability scanners such as nmap.
To change it to an arbitrary value to reduce the chance of being identified by vulnerability scanners, you can do the following (as root or sudoer):
./sacli --key "cs.web_server_name" --value "BLABLABLA" ConfigPut
That’s it, Enjoy!
Assuming “Ethernet” is the name of the network connection you need to enable or disable:
netsh interface set interface "Ethernet" enable
netsh interface set interface "Ethernet" disable

I was looking for a large PDF file that was above 100 MB. The file was inside thousands of other files and folders, so I used this command to find it:
find . -type f -size +100M | grep -i pdf
The above simply used the find utility and specified that this is a file and that file is > 100 MB, then I used grep to filter PDF files, that’s it!
