3TB SATA Drives

Jump to solution

Are there any known issues or limitations with 3TB Drives using ESXi 6?

I'm going to be adding another drive to my home lab system, but I've never used drivers over 2TB.

Just doing a Sanity Check to make sure there are not any known issues with drivers over 2TB.

Note: Not sure if it matters, but most likely the drive will be the WD Black.

I am running 4 x 3tb WD in my home lab, no issues. Assuming the Mother board supports them.

ESXi 6.0 has less issues than ESXi 5.5 with large HDDs.
