I have read where you can create a disk bigger the 2 TB with VMware version 5. not sure how.  I have a delll r510 with a enclosure with 15, 600 gig drives. using raid 6. I can see 7 tb's in vsphear.But  I can only create 2tb disks. Is there something in Vsphear that allows you to create drive bigger then 2 tb's. the goal would be one 7 tb drive on a virtual windows 2008 server..
