What is the maximum capacity of a Pass Through disk?

Pass Through disks are ideal in situations in which you need to exceed the 2 TB capacity limitation of the .VHD format.  In using a Pass Through disk, you will not have the ability to use snapshots.  The maximum size for a Pass Thru disk is????  Unfortunately after a long Google and Bing session, I could not find this answer.  I did find an article about an organization that linked (6) 2 TB hard drives and created a 12 TB pass-through disk that was functional.  I also saw that during some maintenance, they had a problem getting the VM back online.


As always, test before putting a new configuration into production.


Please post your maximum Pass Through disks sizes here and tell us how successful your implementation has been.
