MSA 2324Fc max number of disk in raid5

We have an MSA2324FC G2 with 24 disk.
There's a vdisk in RAID5 with 16 disks +1Spare.
Having freed 2 disks we'd liked to add them to the vdisk in raid5 but even if we see them as available we cannot add to the vdisk.

However if we start creating a new vdisk they shows as available ( we can select them ) to be used .

Question is , is there a maximum number of disks a VRAID5 can contain ?
thanks
