To the best of my knowledge you do set a disk size in a packer template,
but then the disk image grows as you fill the vm with data. IS that what
you mean ?
Inside the VM:
vagrant@vagrantbox:~$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 9.2G 982M 7.8G 12% /
As seen from the host:
ls -lsh debian-800-jessie-disk1.vmdk
