Hi All

I am trying to add a 7TB LUN into our ESXI 4.1 environment but after adding, the capacity shows as 1,023.75GB. So strange..Is it not allowed?

I thought the 8MB block size, 2TB limit is only applicable when i am trying to create a new Virtual Disk for VMs using the 7TB LUN datastore?

i am confused..am i doing it the wrong way?

thanks much in advance
