Running vcenter 6.5 with two volumes attached. One is 11TB and has data. The other is 1.8TB and I'd like to add it to the original storage to provide 12.8TB of storage.
Using the GUI I click "Increase..." on the 11TB volume. A dialog opens with my 1.8TB volume showing. It gets to the "Ready to complete" dialog:
|Increase Datastore Size by||1.82 TB|
|Future Datastore Size||12.72 TB|
|Device and Formatting:|
|Disk/LUN||Local LSI Disk (naa.4235234523452345ae34324523452345ea234555a)|
|VMFS Version||VMFS 5.54|
|Maximum File Size||64.00 TB|
|Block Size||1 MB|
But when I click Finish it fails with this generic error:
I've tried wiping out the partition using both the GUI and partedUtil but still get the above.
Is it possible to grow the 11TB storage by using the "Increase..." button?
Can you please share the screenshot of partition diagram tp check.
May be it has multiple partitions, there is a similar issue addressed in another thread.
Check this if it helps: Failed to expand VMFS datastore... - Cannot change the host configuration
Thanks for the reply and the link. I'm not sure what screenshot you're looking for. Here's the output of partedUtil getptbl:
[root@host:~] partedUtil getptbl "/vmfs/devices/disks/naa.600605b0099596c02359374c9223ae31"

Here's the config spec screenshot when I try to add it:
