Extend LUN size - not shown in vcenter

Hi all,

I have a EMC storage center px12 of which I have increased the size of one of my LUNs from 1024 to 2048. When looking in Vcenter it still shows as 1024. I have tried refreshing and rescanning to no avail. Am I missing something (vcenter 5.1, VMFS3)

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to increase the VMFS Partition! This does not happen on refresh or automatically. You've just increased the container, the partition still needs changing.

Right Click the Datastore > Properties > Increase. (then select the new free space on the existing LUN).
