EVA8100 capacity usage

Hello,
I have a disk group of total capacity of 26TB.
I have used only 22TB of space.
when i try to create a new vdisk, it tells me the maximum i can create is not even up to 500GB.
please see the screenshots attached.
what do you think could be the problem
appreciate your usual prompt responses.

Hi,
the leveling is in its 0% so you should wait for its finish to see the real free space after your last changes... and before your new disk allocation..
the pain is one part of the reality

Hi,
I can't see the screen shots but it could be to do with your disk drive failure protection level for your disk group. If this is set to Single it reserves twice the size if a single disk, it its set to double it reserves 4 times the size of a single HDD.

Hope this helps,
DJ

Hi,

You may refer the below tool for size calculation. And also check for leveling process on DG. If it is running, after finish you will see the actual available size. Else just check the below tool.

StorageWorks Sizing Tool, V6.1.1
