Disk partitions for vsphere nodes


I am new here so excuse me if the question is too basic, I search the web but I did not fin the answer.

I connected rancher to vCenter and I can provision nodes from one template. I can set the CPU RAM and size of disk. However, it is not clear for me how to create the disk partition of the template. Should I use plain partitions? could I use LVM? when rancher deploys the nodes from template, can rancher grow the partition/LVM? If I need to setup additional disks for cloud native storage such as Rook or Longhorn, how can I launch the node with additional disks?

Thanks for your help :slight_smile:
