Hello Experts,

Need few clarifications in HyperV storage which is an SMB storage. I created a storage space with onboard disks of Win server 2012 R2 with file services installed on it. Its has 8x 1.2 TB drives, 4x 900 GB drives. I selected all these drives and created a storage pool which shows 12 TB as total storage. Now when I am creating a virtual disk in mirror mode it should give me a total of 6 TB approx but when I am creating it just tells I can create a vdisk with maximum size of 4.9 TB instead of 6 TB. When I tried to create second vdisk it shows up the remaining space which is 1.09 TB.

Is there any limitation on creating a virtual disk?

Thanks in advance
