I am fairly new to VMware and I am setting up a new host and trying to create a datastore but it only sees 185GB of free space on a freshly created 3.6TB RAID 5 VD. It shows me 2 partitions. 1 “Linux swap partition” and an “empty” partition each 1.8GB. If I select “use all available partitions it says the data store will be 2TB. What about the other 1.6TB? How do I use the full 3.6TB that should actually be free? Info on my host below.
ESXi, 6.5.0, 5969303
Dell R620 128GB RAM
Dell PERC h710 mini RAID 5 3x2TB
