    Ivan,
    The v13.5 VMWare Installation Guide provides directions in the "Configuring Disk Space" Section:
    https://docs.imperva.com/bundle/v13.5-vmware-installation-guide/page/57609.htm

    In short:
    1.  Add the disk to the VM
    2.  impctl gateway stop
    3.  impctl platform storage allocate-new-vdidsks
    4.  impctl gateway start
    The article does not explicitly state it, but this allocation process adds the new disk, via lvm, so that it increases the /data partition.

    Note:  For v12 versions, before the "/data" partition was introduced in SecureSphere: the /var partition gets extended.
