I am having quite a problem in one of my envirements and would be glad to receive some help. Here is the setup:
- 2 ESXi 5.1 vHosts
- 1 Synology-NAS
- Veeam running on another hardwareserver
I have a VM with 3 attached virtual SCSI-Disks: System (300 GB, thin), Data_1 (1.8 TB, thin), Data_2 (200 GB, thin). Now two weeks ago I extended the Data_1-VHD and put it to its maximum of 2 TB (=2048 GB). Since that change Veeam throws me an error, moaning that the maximum Size is reached. I cannot resize the disk, I tried the following guide: http://www.virten.net/2014/11/howto-shr ... disk-vmdk/
- I also tried the VMWare Converter, but I cannot change the size of the disk neither.
I searched through the internet and this forum, I am not the first one with that problem but none of the solutions is what I am looking for ...
So how to handle that issue? Will the problem be solved if I upgrade to ESXi 5.5? Will it be solved if I update Veeam to a newer version? Would it help to transform the disk into Think-Layer Provision?
Thanks in advance
