After replacing 2 disk drives and finishing Leveling, Total capacity is less than before

Hi guys

I have a curious situation regarding replacement of 2 disk drives 900GB SAS in EVA P6300: after replacing and completing Leveling (one by one) of 2 broken hard disk drives HDDs Total Capacity of the Disk Group DG is reporting less than before why??

Before

8379 GB, Disk Drive Failure Protection Requested and Actual "Single" 12x 900GB SAS drives

After

8022 GB, Disk Drive Failure Protection Requested and Actual "Single" 12x 900GB SAS drives

Full details:
Controller HSV340 with firmware 11001100
HDD Model number EG0900FBLSK with firmware HPD5. This applies for both new and old HDDs installed on EVA P6300.

Is there a process like defragmentation applicable so we can restore total capacity as before??

Regards

If the Total capacity is reporting incorrect then the best option to perform is a conntroller resynch.

However you would need to log a support call as this needs to be done from the Field service page.

Please note that XCS 11001100 is inactive and it is recommended to upgrade the firmware to the latest.

Regards.
