As a follow-up to the article I wrote on July 22 (ESXi 4.1 does not use full disk capacity for vmfs3) an important information has to be updated!
Today I installed another ESXi 4.1 server, using also a Dell PowerEdge server (but this time 2950) with a total disk capacity of 1.4TB. And surprise surprise, this time ESXi formatted the vmfs up to the full size, so the vmfs3-partition has a size of 1.4TB!
This means that the bug, described on July 22, is only occurring when the total disk capacity is bigger than 2TB!
