"camcontrol rescan" does not force fetching the updated disk size.
AFAIK there is no way to do that.  However, this should happen
automatically, if the "other side" properly sends proper Unit

VMWare. Reboot obviously clears things up.


Is open-vm-tools installed?

I ask because if I don't have it installed and the kernel modules
loaded, VMware doesn't notify the guest OS of disks being

VMware tools were not installed at the time. I'll try that, but I doubt it will make a difference for resizing.

Also, what disk controller are you using?

The ESXi 5.5 default controller for FreeBSD, LSI Logic Parallel ...

mpt0@pci0:0:16:0: class=0x010000 card=0x197615ad chip=0x00301000 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'LSI Logic / Symbios Logic'
    device     = '53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI'
    class      = mass storage
    subclass   = SCSI

I'll try it with the LSI Logic SAS controller as well to see if that makes a difference.
