Disk Size Reported Incorrectly

OnlyMe

Hi All,

I'm new to Netapp, and have the following problem.

 

I have a FAS 2040 (2U) ONTAP 8.0.2 7-mode with 2 controllers, with no internal disks and I have an external DS4246.

 

When I installed the OS it created the aggregate (aggr0) on the DS4246, but you can see below that the physical disks are 4 TB and the used is 914 GB.

 

The problem is when I try to create a new aggregate, the disks appear as 914 GB...

I tried failing the disk and restore it (set priv diag), zeroing the disk etc...

 

Do you have any ideas how do I make them 4 TB?

4TB drives are not supported on a FAS2040 with DOT 8.0.2 7-mode.  According to Hardware Universe, the maximum for external DS4246 is 3TB drives.
