BEX 2014 SP2 exact limits for GPT and GRT (2 TB) and VMware vSphere 5.5

Where are the exact limit for enabling GRT backup/restore within an VMware environment?

Symantec documents tell me use anything below 2TB.

I´ve created a VMDK with (vCenter told me) 1,99902344 TB capacity.

Windows Server 2012 R2 disk manager reports a BASIC (MBR partitioning) disk with 2047,00 GB capacity.

Windows Explorer told me 1,99 TB = 2.197.946.363.904 Bytes.

 

So the important question is: what is the exact limit / border to use GRT successfully

in thie situation?

 

I know that BEX 2015 will solve this problem ;-)

 

Thanks a lot

 

Andreas
