My OS is W2k with spk4.

To retain the option of migrating the logical drive stripe size to a larger stripe size, do not use all available disk space when creating logical drives. A minimum of 256 KB per physical disk must remain unassigned in the array to retain this option. For example, if four 146 GB disk drives are used to configure a RAID 5 array, 1,024KB of unassigned drive space should remain (256 KB X 4) to allow migrating to a larger stripe size.
Enjoy!

Re: Smart Array 6402

Marcello,
Did you try to use latest ACU as
Vijay suggested?
I see in description: added support for the following:
"Extending any logical drive to new size of up to 2TB.
Creating logical drives to a max size of 2TB using 32 sectors (Max boot disabled)"
I will try it on Sunday.

Igor
