EVA 5000 adding disk to disk gropu

Hi
I have EVA 5000, with 107disks, we have space for 55 more. I have the disks, and i have added them. When i create new disk group with 55 drives, EVA put 49 in the new disk group. (disks are 147 GB) and leave 6 disks ungrouped.
The total capacity in the new disk group is 5256GB with protection level2, but usable capacity is 2047,99GB. Is this possible? I have then created two disk groups with 21 disk in each, and i have total capacity 2584 and available is in raid5 2047,99, this seems ok. So what should i do?


Thanks in advance Nemanja

Hi,
it always shows the max capacity of one vdisk which is limited to 2TBs in EVA 5k, so it is ok...
the pain is one part of the reality
