We recently leased a new server with ~ 12TB of disk space. 2 Arrays of 6145GB and 5028GB. The original plan was to install Hyper-V and migrate our 2-3 small VM's over to this server and then build our expiring file server within Hyper-V on this server as well. Upon looking into it further, I found that Hyper-V VHD sizes has a maximum capacity of 2040GB (or just under 2TB). I wanted a large D drive (~8TB or so) for this file server, so obviously this was a show stopper for us. Does anyone know of a better solution? The only solution we've come up with was to build this new server as the file server and then load Hyper-V and migrate those smaller VM's to it. I'm relatively newer to Hyper-V and virtualization, so I apologize in advance.
