iSCSI connection MSA 1060 to VCENTER (not all marked up space is connected)

Hello!
Connected new HPE MSA 1060 SFF storage + HPE MSA 2060 LFF disk enclosure.
We created Pool A from 10x14TB disks in RAID10 and got 69.9 TB.
I created a Volume with a size of 69.7TB and then connected it via iSCSI as a VCENTER datastore. VCENTER displayed a 63.48 TB device. And we had a question where did the other 6.22 TB go?
Please tell me which settings need to be corrected, perhaps somewhere something is backed up on the side of the HPE MSA 1060 SFF settings.

Hi,

seems a typical TB vs TiB display issue:

See: HPE MSA 1060_2060_2062 Storage Management Guide.pdf Page 14 "Size representations".

FYI - you can change the presentation mode for your MSA to Base 2 to match what you would see in the OS.
Drives display in Base 10,  OSes display in Base 2
MSA feature to change to Base2
CLI>  set cli-parametere base 2       {Only changes for this session}
CLI>  set user base 2  <username>    {Changes for every time this user logs in}
CLI>  set user-group base 2  <User group name>    {Changes for LDAP logged in users associated to this user group}

Cool, I know this for P2000, but did not find it with a search in the MSA CLI Reference Guide.
But it's there if you know where to look.
