Hey VMWare pros,
I have an ESXi box on my desk. I’ve used it for various VMs over the years, mainly for storage. A while ago, I threw a 320GB HDD in there because it was lying around and figured it would be good use.
Now, I want to remove that HDD from the datastore array and put a bigger HDD to replace it. The Mobo in the box only has 3 SATA connections. There’s plenty of storage for the disk’s contents to be migrated to the others in the array, but is that possible? Or is it indefinitely tied into the datastore until I delete the VM that’s on the array? If it’s the latter, that sucks.[This screenshot gives a better idea what I’m talking about](https://imgur.com/a/OXykMa5)
