Hi

I have installed ESXi4.1 on a usb stick, the server has a raid 5 config with 6 TBs of storage. As we know Vmware will only see 2TB luns less 512B. How can I create luns on there? People mention extents is there a way this can be done. I am not to worried if it is supported as long as it works.

Any help appreciated.

Thank you

My guess is that there is not a raid driver loaded for whatever raid controller you are using.
