    Hi,

    On ESXi5 while running the below command i am getting the error.

    Command:

    partedUtil "setptbl"  /vmfs/devices/disks/mpx.vmhba1:C0:T0:L0 "gpt" "1 2048 10474379 AA31E02A400F11DB9590000C2911D1B8 0"

    Error: Read-only file system during write on /dev/disks/mpx.vmhba1:C0:T0:L0
    SetPtableGpt: Unable to commit to disk

    I am trying to partition the existing volume of 1.8 TB into smaller one so that i can create multiple datastores out of them. As this is failing i am not able to proceed further. Any support would really help me.

    Regards,

    Kiran
