i have an older Intel Server with S5000VSA, latest Firmware and Updates installed. Windows 2012 Server Standard as OS. I added 2 WD4000F9YZ 4TB drives to the internal RAID controller, but when I go into the Configuration Utility at Startup using Ctrl+E the two drives are shown with the correct type, but only 1717783MB of capacity, which is about half of the real size. On another Computer the drive is recogniced correct with 4TB.
Using the Raid Web Console (newest Version) they aren't shown at all. Under physical are only my two old WD 600GB SATA drives???
For Intel® Server Board RAID controllers based on ESRT2 the maximum physical drive capacity supported is 2 TB. See the http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-023017 Maximum logical drive capacity supported on Intel SAS RAID controllers page for more information.
