Windows sees 5TB volume split as 2 TB- 3TB partitions

I have a 5TB MSA2000 volume. Windows 2003 R2 64
bits does not show the volume as a whole, instead it splits is in two volumes (2 TB and the rest).
Any ideas?

Emulex's HBAnywhere shows LUN capacity as 2TB.

Hi,

I've seen your description occur when the disk has been partitioned in windows as an MBR disk, in order to have a partition over 2TB you'll need to convert it to GPT.

From memory there are also some specific GPT hotfixes around, but they might have been for just 32-Bit Windows.
