HP proliant server DL380 G3 not seeing all drive space

We have just got a HP proliant server DL380 G3 with 4 x 36.2 hot pluggable HD. However the Smart array can only see a total of 68GB with RAID 5. This is not normal as for the RAID 5, the HD size should be at least 108.6GB.

Grateful if somebody can help.

Regards

What does the Array Configuration Utility say? Are all 4 drives part of the RAID 5 set? It's possible that it is configured as RAID 5 with an OnLine Spare, which would give you the 68GB size.

Thanks,

Thanks Doug,

I have just reviewed the Logical drive configuration and found there was as you sais One spart disk. I deleted the logical drive and recreated another with RAID5 withour spare disk and now, it is OK.

Thanks for your contribution
