Hello all...looking for options here is all...something I may be overlooking.
I have a VM with Volumes associated with it; as far as virtual infrastructure goes, those Volumes are RDMs from a fibre channel EMC CX4 SAN. I want to add another RDM to the VM, but the problem is the LUN I want to map to (RDM) is 2.6TB. I didn't think RDM'd volumes mattered necessarily as far as the storage config max of 2TB goes, but it does it seems. Is there a way to get this to work with the size I'm wanting to have? My only thought for getting this to work (have a single volume on the VM) is to destroy the LUN I have now (at the moment, there's no data on the LUN), create 2 LUNs of 1.3TB, add them to the VM, and make them dynamic volumes so as to span them into 1 volume. Does anyone have any ideas how to overcome doing it like this?...in other words I want to be able to add 1 RDM (if possible) and be done with it.
I have ESX4 and the above mentioned SAN.
