We've configured a multi-extent datastore sitting on top of an EqualLogic PS4000. Each of these extents are backed by individual Volumes on a Dell EqualLogic box. Two of these volumes are utilized at 95%, and three at 85%, but the actual used space on the VM datastore is just around 50%. EqualLogic will shut down a volume when it reaches 100% utilization. Will VMFS fill a volume to 100% while space is available elsewhere? Unfortunately the direction we're getting from VM support is: "...extents are an older part of Vmware technology that we discourage customers from using. The reason for this is the management complexity that extents bring, plus the risk that extents add (if a single extent fails, it can impact the entire datastore)." Help!
