SSD LUNs over 2 TB in VMware

I have an IBM VDI appliance with 18TB of disk.  I carved a 10TB LUN and present to ESXi 5.1.  When I attempt to add a datastore I get an error referring to SSD storage.  Not sure why I can't allocate a datastore?

What is the error message?

Screenshot would be helpful for the experts.

If you add a 2TB LUN, do you get an error ?

Thank you everyone for your comments.  Came to find that after speaking with VMware there was an issue with block size where VMware only supports 512KB.  Once this was done it worked.  Thank you again
