I have an MSA1000 which had 4 300Gb HDs with a total storage capacity of 572 GB plus one hot spear which I use to feed my VMWare ESXi server. I added 2 more 300GB hard drives but the capacity did not change. After physically adding the drives I ran an EXPAND command (Expand unit 0 disk 101-disk 103 disk201-disk203) which updated lun 0 with the additional drives. After it processed I ran an ADD command to add a hot spear (Add spare unit=0 disk104). The strange thing is that my capacity didnt change and I need to have excess capacity to run the Extend command.
Here is the current configuration:
In PDLA mode, Unit 0 is Lun 1; In VSA mode, Unit 0 is Lun 0.

Any suggestions on why Im not seeing the additional storage?
