    Unable to create/expand datastore larger than 16 TB

      I created Datastore1 on LSI 27 TB internal RAID5 disk array but maximum it would allow was 16 TB.

      I increased datastore capacity by expanding existing VMFS datastore extent.

      It completed successfully and the underlying partition now occupies the entire disk but Datastore1 still only shows 16 TB capacity:
