Windows 2016 Storage Pool Issue

Last Modified: 2017-03-23
I installed 2 Physical servers running Windows Std 2016 x64.  I installed the Failover Cluster  and File and Storage features.  I have a number of  physical drives between these two servers.  on File and Storage Services - Volumes-Storage Pools the "Primordial" sees only 1 disk and not the other 5.  The other 5 are shown in disk management and Under File and Storage Services -Volumes-Disks but they are not showing up under Storage pool.  I have attached a few snagits.  Ive run Get-Physicaldisk in Powershell and it shows 7 drives as CanPool = True and Healthy.  How do I get these drives added to the Storage Pool?
