Looking for a centralised file server application which runs on Linux flavour OS.Would like to know what is the disk size capacity which an ESX can hold at the maximum and also the maximum disk size a paticular linux vm can hold ?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That all depends on the block size of the host volume. When set at its largest, the largest virtual disk you can present is 2 TB which is the largest volume size that most OSs can address anyway.

This is a good document for VI3.5 http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vi3_35/esx_3/r35u2/vi3_35_25_u2_config_max.pdf
I didnt find a similar document for vSphere. But you dont mention which one you are using. And I dont imagine the maximums have reduced with vSphere, if anything they are higher than with VI3.5

    I believe that they are actually the same as this comes from the block size on the disk and is a file system limitation not a VMware limitation.
