I am working on creating a Software SAN solution and before paying for the licenses neccessary I am using free versions to test.
I created a RAID 50 logical disk out of (6) 2 TB drives which gave me a drive with about 7.2 TB space. When I was installing Hyper-V at the disk prep screen, I created a partition for Hyper-V of about 89414 MB. When the screen refreshed I had the new partition and two sections of unpartitioned space. One was about 5400 GB and the other was about 1900 GB. I was able to partition the 1900GB portion, but when I attempt to partition the 5400GB portion it can't create the partition. Now even when I remove all partition, it show two sections of unallocated space (2048 and 5402). Is 2 TB the largest partioton Windows can deal with?
I also tried with Windows Server 2008 Standard and have the same problem.
