I ran into an interesting issue tonight looking at an HPE MSA 2050..
I was creating a RAID6 disk group with 5 x 4TB SAS drives, but the MSA was telling me that I would have 119TB of space available?
There should be 20TB of raw space and approximately 12TB (4TB * 3) of usable space with 2 drives for parity.
Then I looked a little closer….
11.9TB you dummy…. I knew I had to share this exciting technical break through with you guys! Happy Friday!
