Resize Virtual Disk ESX (VMWARE)

Extending Virtual Disk

vmkfstools -X XXG test.vmdk
XX - new disk size

If you desire to extend partition 0, mount a virtual disk on other virtual server as an additional hard disk.
 
Note : It doesn't work properly on esx 3 cluster.
The solution I've found without cluster's restart:
1. Extend Virtual Disk on desired server 
2. Copy the server.(Only for clusters)
3. Down the old server and mount the new one.(Only for clusters)
4. Extend windows partition in this way.
