I took over a client who has an ESXi installed on a server. The server has 500GB HDD so the Datastore capacity is showing up as 465GB. The problem I'm having is that SBS 2011 what is installed on this ESXi is running out of hard drive space. Here's more information:
There are 2 virtual servers installed on it, SBS2011 as the production server with maximum virtual disk size of 216GB of which 210GB is allocated to the server right now.
And then there is also Server2k3 installed with some software to maintain SBS etc. Virtual HDD size 36GB.
So, 36GB + 216GB is 256GB but I cannot increase the size of SBS virtual HDD it seems.
I've done some more digging and found this: http://blog.corneredge.com/2009/07/22/data-store-size-limits-from-block-size-in-vmware-esx-and-esxi/
The server I'm maintaining has 1MB
We have just 1 ESXi installed, it's a small business so no need for more.
What would be my best course of action to get more hard disks space for SBS2011.
