Can't create or extend volume RAID 5


I added two more 2TB disks to my RAID 5 but i'm unable to create a new volume or extend the unallocated space.

Error: "There is not enough space avaliable on the disk to complete this operation"


I already tried some things, but didnt worked:

Disk Rescan in computer management

Disk rebuild in Dell controller

Extend a very lower size instead of full disk size

Re: Can't create or extend volume RAID 5



Let me confirm a few things with you. 

What is the system you are working on?

Are you seeing any errors or amber lights on the server?

How are you configuring, using OMSA or controller?

Let me know what you see.
