I have an EMC VNXe 3150. I also have (3) ESXi 5.5 hosts in a datacenter. I have a few datastores over 2TB. However, I am unable to add a 2.5TB datastore from a LUN of 2.5TB presented to the hosts over iSCSI, just like all of the others. It is GPT, VMFS-5, 1MB. The stand-alone client shows 2TB max file size though. Error simply says an error occurred during host config.

Any help is much appreciated.
