I have a 2.7 TB virtual disk (LSI MegaRAID controller with ten 600GB SAS drives configured in RAID10) under Linux. I am sharing this disk to a remote ESX host via ISCSI.
Unfortunately ESX will only make a 740GB VMFS partition if you present it LUN greater than 2TB. I could make a 6 disk RAID10 (which would be smaller than 2TB) but I really don't want to lose spindles (IOPS).
Is there a way to split this big RAID10 virtual disk up (for ESX) in Linux?
