HELP! Capacity of VA7100 only can use half !

Hello everyone:
I'm using VA7100 with CommandView 1.0 on HP-UX.
The total physical size is 133.51G(36G*4)..
But I only can use 63.32G(Logical Drives)..
(There are 70.19G for Redundancy)..
Less than 50% that I can use ?
Can anybody tell me how to modify that rate ?
Or how to set AutoRaid,Raid0,Raid10,Raid5DP ?
Thank you very much !!

Hi Adam,
With firsts releases of Firmware in Va7100 you only can do RAID 0+1. In September ( I think) a new version will be released, which will be able to do autoraid, that is RAID 5DP and RAID 1+0.

This Unit is base RAID System and the normal mode right now is RAID 1/0 that can only handle half of as Data storage and hot spare enable ? If yes that is the rest of the disk space you search for.

The new firmware which enables AutoRaid functionality (and some other things like Netware and AIX support) has been released last 7th of August.
Please contact your local HP representative for further details.
