iSCSI disk over 16TB with VMware




Here is our setup


Ontap 9 cluster with FAS8040 connected to dual cisco Nexus 7K connected to servers.

The servers are controlled by vCenter and all hosts running ESXi 6. Storage is presented to Hosts via iSCSI.


THere is a limit of 16TB for Luns that re for VMware.


We have a customer that is requesting disks on host to be over 50TB, we have available space on aggregate but can not create Lun over 16TB. What are the solutions in this case?


Thank you,
