Extend ESX VMFS volume

I have installed an ESX 4.0 (VSPHERE) on a blade server , Bl460c
i have created a 200 GB LUN disk on the EVA storage and presented this disk as VMFS volume to the ESX server
i have created many Virtual machines on this volume
i have extended the volume on the EVA from 200 GB to 400 GB , (changed the size online on the EVA) , but still i am viewing 200 GB on the ESX , how can i extend the file system on the ESX server and have 400 GB vmfs volume

Thank you

Re: Extend ESX VMFS volume


Rescan the HBA, and then hit properties on the datastore and increase size.

Thats all
