Hello.  I am trying to set up a server with a RAID 5 configuration.  I am using an areca 1220 controller in the server.  My problem is that the OS (Linux Red Hat 9) does not see the RAID.
When creating the RAID it shows all the drives (5 drives) and its capacity.  Once I setup the Volume Set, It shows 0 Capacity.  My question would be why after creating the volume set would the system show 0 Capacity?
What would cause it to think the drives have no space left?

Thank you
