I have a HP Proliant 180 G6 with a HP Smart Array P212 Controller installed. I've set up a RAID5 using 4 x 1TB HDD. This would give me approx. 3TB of storage space. I use the HP ProLiant Easy Set-Up CD and choose the OS and the size of the boot partition is set to 80GB. The idea is to use the rest of the disk for file storage. The server boots as normal but when I go to Disk Management this is what I see:
1 Disk that contains the boot partition (80GB) and 2 (!!!!) other unallocated partitions (?). One is almost 2TB and the remaining is 760GB !!!! I cannot make 1 partition of those 2!!! It looks like the limit is set to 2TB.
Is there any way I can use the remaining space?
I've read about MBR disks and GPT disks but I'm not sure if that is an option for me given my configuration!!! Please help!
