max shared storage iscsi size in xenserver

We have our xenserver using shared storage via Iscsi from an equallogic box.   Does anyone know of any size limitations of the partition that can be made or presented to xenserver.  We are currently using a 4.5 TB partition presented to xen.  Are there any issues with upping this to 7 TB's?  Thanks for the help.

XenServer uses LVM to carve out iSCSI LUNs.  From the LVM docs:  For Linux kernel 2.6.x running on 64-bit CPU, the maximum LV size is 8EB.

I think you're cool with 7TB.
