HP 3PAR T400 sees the disk as 1TB not 2TB.

The system on sees 1TB instead of 2TB. That's why I got this error below. The disk is 641222-001 (2TB).

Do I have a disk that is marked as 2TB but actually a 1TB.

What OS are you running?

What does "showpd -i 204 205 206 207 268" show?

I wanted the -i output to check the model.  Also of the new PD.

The label says it is 2TB and the system sees it as 1TB. Is it that the HDD controller is for 1TB and the HDD mechanism/platter for 2TB? We bought it from a reliable HP distributor.IMG_9036_1.JPG

I already put back the defective one (hoping it would revive, besides I do not have any spare). The only info I got is this screenshot.Failed Degraded.png

Re: HPE 3PAR T400 sees the disk as 1TB not 2TB

From this HDD there are two part numbers first is 641222-001 (for 3PAR T400) and the second is 0967253-01 (for 3PAR F200/F400). Does this HDD will work with both storage?IMG_9036_1.JPG

Again:  I wanted the showpd -i output to check the model.  Also of the new PD.

What does "showversion -b" show?

From the model HUA722020ALA330 and the FWDB, it seems it is 2 TB.

If you have to, put the new PD in another mag.

The system sees it as 1TB, regardless of the label (as 2TB). Any idea/guess why this thing happens.

I already removed it from the magazine. I am afraid of putting the 1TB to another magazine.

Why?  Put it in an empty magazine and don't admitpd it.

The labels are correct (2TB) but the actual HDD is really 1TB. Got a new replacement from HP and it works fine.
