I’ve attached a 4 TB external USB disk to an ESXi 6.5 host. It works fine and can be attached to VM with an USB Controller.
Now I’m considering to attach an external USB disk docking station with a 16 TB SATA disk to the same host. The manufacturer says that the dock hardware does not limit the disk size and will work with the host if it supports “normal” external USB disks.
What do you think? Will the USB dock with a 16 TB SATA disk work fine with ESXi 6.5?
