While installing a new Virtual Machine or add a new hard drive to ESXi, I receive and error saying "the file is too big for the file system". Could someone help with as to what this is and how to fix it?
The only way to change this is to reformat your VMFS partition. I've also had to resort in some cases to using dynamic volumes for a particular cluster where we could not reformat, and had no space left for a new datastore. Not the best option, but it was something that could be used without having to destroy and recreate your storage.
