Thanks to this question I've now got my ESXi 5.0.0 (Build 623860) running/booting off a physically enlarged 9650SE controlled RAID1 array. The 1TB drives had been replaced with 2TBs; I'd like to logically expand the array but don't have the
tx_cli program/script installed.
Where can I get the tools (
tw_cli for ESXi 5.0.0 build 623860) to grow the datastore size, either from the command line or from a vSphere client?
This article describes how to get the ESXi system up and running off the RAID controller, but I'm assuming that has been done, because ... well ... my system is running off the RAID controller.
I should also mention that the article I think I want, http://kb.lsi.com/KnowledgebaseArticle16655.aspx, seems to be unavailable.
The output of the of partition table is:

The datastore is the last line, which is ~2TB (just less than) but the formmated size reported in vSphere is 900Mb.
