VMWare need to overcome 2Tb VMDK limit?

We have a DR solution whereby we are replicating a physical server to a virtual server.
The physical server incorporates alot of storage and is forcasted to exceed 2Tb within the next few months. The virtual server will then have a problem in that the vmdk will exceed the 2Tb limit.
The Vmware server comprises a DL server with a scsi attached storage array (no iscsi device).
Is there a way to replicate a physical server exceeding 2Tb to a vmware virtual (I know that if we had an iscsi device we could split the OS to VMFS and the data to NTFS) using a VMware scsi storage solution?
