Unable to create storage pool and volume for dell equallogic ps4000

I have an exsiting Dell Equallogic PS4000 storage with 8 X 500GB sata hard drive.
Recently I purchase 8 X 1TB hard drive and inserted to the remaining slot.

I login to the Equallogic software, and saw all the drive detected but my capacity is still 2.61TB.

I refresh the page but nothing change.

Any Dell Storage expert to help me out?

You have to configure the PS4000 by telling it how you want to use them.  How could it possibly know if you want, for example, a 7TB RAID5, or 2 x 4TB RAID10s?

According to Dell, it is not an issue. Because Equallogic need time to rebuild the capacity.

There is a status page to see the rebuild status. After the rebuild finnish, I could see the capacity increase.
