EVA 8000 - Adding new group

Have EVA 8000 populated with 146GB FC disks. Want to add a new disk group for FATAs. FATAs are installed and show up but CommandView (5.x) won't let me create a new group.

Attempt to create a new group give the following error: "There are not enough disk drives to create a disk group"

Re: EVA 8000 - Adding new group

In an EVA minimum no. of HDDs for a disk group is 8.

Preferably diskgroups should have HDDs in multiples of 8.
