I just added an IBM external storage array and an additional RAID controller for it to my VMWare ESX 3.5 server. I configured five 750GB drives into a RAID5 with the controller and VMWare sees both the new controller and the 2.72TB volume. However . . . When I use the Add Storage Wizard from VMWare Infrastructure Client the "Device Location" screen shows that the volume has a capacity of 2.72 TB with 742.23 GB available.
Can anyone tell me why and how to fix it? I am setting up a file server and really want the entire 2.72 TB available. I know the max file size is 2TB for VMFS and that should be no problem - actually preferred.
Thanks in advance to anyone that can tell me what I am doing wrong. The RAID controller is an IBM (LSI Logic) MegaRAID 8480 controller.
