  1. Mike, thanks for this article. Perfectly simple to follow and resolve this issue. At the end of Step 1 you mention you couldn’t find a command to refresh the disk space. I was able to run “vpxd_servicecfg storage lvm autogrow” and get it to refresh without rebooting. Hope that helps someone else. Thanks again!

  2. I attempted this and now my vcenter server is dead. Just comes up with a 503 error and veeam can’t connect either.
    503 Service Unavailable (Failed to connect to endpoint: [N7Vmacore4Http16LocalServiceSpecE:0x7f966405be30] _serverNamespace = /vsphere-client _isRedirect = false _port = 9090)

  3. Hi, with these commands you SHOULD be able to see the expanded disk without reboot
    ls /sys/class/scsi_device/
    echo 1 > /sys/class/scsi_device/0:0:0:0/device/rescan
    partprobe -s
