I have configured all disk running as RAID-5 (Total 956 Gb). When I create a disk storage, it only show 273.40GB available. Why the free space is so smaller ? Will there be a possibility that the RAID is not fully initialized (as I have reconfigure the RAID-5) and then install the VMware.

Hi AXISHK,

It may be a basic question but, are all of those disks in the same size? And what is the size.

Delete the legacy datastore and create a new datastore with available space or better yet re-install on flash drive or ssd and use the entire disk for the datastore

have you used this disk before for another installation?

it looks like this disk has already been used.

re-format and destroy the RAID 5, and re-create.
