msa 2324sa more the 8 disk groups

i'm attemping to expand my Raid10 vdisk. I've done this before without a problem. but now i already have 8 disks sets and that seems to be the limit. when i go the the expand tab i cannot check any of the boxes for disk to expand to. is 8 sets of disks a hard limit?, is there any way to increase that?

Hello,

you can have max 16 disks in a RAID 10 vdisk. If you want to use more disks in a vdisks, you have to use RAID 50. This is a hard-coded limit.
