A little bit of a NOOB looking for best practice.
I have ESXi vShpere 6.5 U2 installed. I want to share a pretty large drive ( < 4 TB) across the organization. I have a WIN 2012 VM configured, which I plan on using to do the sharing.
Should I present this 'to be shared' drive to my WIN 2012 VM through vShpere as an added disk drive or should I use the ISCSi initiator inside my WIN 2012 box to connect to FreeNAS?
PS - I was told that presenting a drive through vShpere was a problem for drives 2 TB or larger. Is this also true?
