XP12000 Host group question

Hi, I come from an HDS background and recently started administering a number of XP12000s. I have been asked if it is possible to extend a LUN on a Vmware cluster. The host group is set to (0C Windows) with option 19 for VMware. i read somewhere that you can not expand (LUSE) an existing LUN that is presented using this host mode.
can any one help me?

many thanks

Hi,
LUSE is not stripped, only spanned. Maybe the better solution is then to create/present a new LDEV volume to the ESX...
the pain is one part of the reality
