Question : Disk expansion, missing space.


I have an Proliant DL385 G1 with one Smart Array 6400 Controller card.
OS is : Windows 2003 Enterprise SP2

I have expanded the disk array from 3 to 4 physical disks on a Raid 5 setup. The disk size is 146GB.

Windows explorer is reporting only 273GB as total size ??
I have attached a picture of disk management, it seems correct to me.

What is wrong ?, i have updated the firmware and software of 6400 controller and restarted the server, same problem.

Tested a 3rd party tool (Paragorn disk manager), and it reports the correct disk size of 410.1 GB

Answer : Disk expansion, missing space.

As you haven't configured the DRAC best would be contact the DataCenter's NOC to take a look at it, rather wasting the time which will we waste in this particular case.

and also make sure that you configure the DRAC as soon as the server is up this time.
