No extended space in the current Logical drive-RAID 5 containing 5 x 300GB 12G SAS drives

Hi,

We have a ProLiant DL360 Gen9 with a Smart Array  Controller containing 5 x 300GB 12G SAS drives configured in to 1 logical drive using RAID 5. I have added 3 new drives of identical type the the first 5 and want to use it to expand the size of the current RAID array. After adding such drivers using the HP Smart Storage Administrator, in Linux (Redhat 6) using parted or gdisk , there is no extended space in the current ogical drive.

Here is the Before and After results in my server using command gdisk /dev/sda

Before:

Number Start (sector) End (sector) Size Code Name
1 2048 2099199 1024.0 MiB EF00 
2 2099200 4196351 1024.0 MiB 0700 
3 4196352 37750783 16.0 GiB 8200 
4 37750784 2343486010 1.1 TiB 8E00 Linux LVM => note that the started sector No 37750784, with current size = 1.1 TiB

After:

Number Start (sector) End (sector) Size Code Name
1 2048 2099199 1024.0 MiB EF00
2 2099200 4196351 1024.0 MiB 0700
3 4196352 37750783 16.0 GiB 8200
4 37750784 2343486010 1.1 TiB 8E00 Linux LVM

Any idea so to fix this issue?

Thx in advance,

Trung
