Shalom,

You need to install PHCO_37939

This patch handles that issue. I know its not intuitive but it should be done.

Re: Not allowed to create logical volumes larger than 2TB

What exacly this patch stands for ..  I am not able to find the download link .

Re: Not allowed to create logical volumes larger than 2TB

the link for the "support center" (the itrc replacement) is:

https://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/public/

 

however, to get a patch (or doing anything else of substance) you need a login....and to get a login you need a support contract.

The "PHCO" prefix stands for a COmmand patch.  You need to be logged into the HPSC *and* have a valid support contract to download patches.

 

Go to the HPSC home page:

 

http://www.hp.com/go/hpsc

 

Then, *login* [ you may have to do this again to see the link to the Patch Database ]; and click

"Patch Management" on the left near the top of the listed items.

 

Regards!
