HI Guys,

I have a new RocketRAID 2320
(http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA/rr2320.htm) with a 3TB RAID5. But I
can not create a 3TB slice.

I created the partition in FDISK named da2s1 with a size of 2861178MB
(Box A&B in ref img attached).

I then used the DiskLabel Editor to create a slice with a size of 2794GB (Box C)

Looking at the DEV folder I notice two slices have been created da2s1c
& da2s1d (Box D&E)

I run 'df -h' to view the size of the D-slice, and it shows as only 723G (box F)

I confirm this by re-entering the Label Editor and the slice is now
shown as 746GB (Box G), and there is no slice named da2s1c.

What could be going wrong here?

Kindest regards
