New Disk in EVA4400 Showing Reduced Capacity

Install 8 new 2TB FATA disks in an EVA4400. All firmware is up to date - Controllers, SAN Switches, Disks, Command View. 

 

Capacity should be 8 disks - 1 = 14TB capacity.

 

However, commandview is only should a capacity of 9,934GB.

 

Is this screenshot right for 8 x 2TB disks….??

I get: 8 * 2 marketing TB as 14.55 computer TB or 14,901 GB.

I'm not sure where that 9,934 comes from?

Disk drive protection == single.

 

This actually reserves the equivalent of two disks - 4TB in your case.
