EVA 8400 + ESX 4

I have an EVA 8400 and I'm trying to configure LUNS for ESX 4.0. I create & present the vdisk, but when I try to add the storage in ESX, I get the error "Error duing the configuration of the host: Failed to get disk partition information" I did some googling found an fdsik hack (fdisk o -> -> w ->quit). I still get the error, but if I click "Back" and then "Next" I get past the error. The next error I get is "Object reference is not set to an instance of an object"

Does anyone know a away around this?

How big is the LUN? 2TB?

I've had problems adding a 2TB LUN to ESX. 2047GB might work.

Yup - I changed it from 2048GB to 2047GB and it was happy. The clue was when I ran /usr/sbin/esxcfg-scsidevs -l and saw the size was 0Mb.
