My recommendation to you would have been to replace the 72GB disks with 146GB drives, one-by-one, allowing each to rebuild. That would then allow you to expand the logical drive from 72GB to 146GB. This would require the use of an offline utility or the hpacucli or hpssacli tool to perform the expansion. Within ZFS, the new LUN size could probably be ...

Based on your screenshot, something is terribly wrong with your setup. You have three disks, each configured as a RAID 0 logical drive. Therefore you have no redundancy and can't remove a disk without losing the data on it. Why was the server configured this way?

The two updates posted in the question and further troubleshooting, lead us to the real answer to the problem. We found out that it was related to driver in ESXI for the P410 raid card.

This is probably a backplane or backplane expander issue. There's a slight chance it could be cable. And possibly RAID controller. The DL180 G6 you're using is probably a 12-bay 3.5" unit, and is connected to the Smart Array P410 via a single 4-lane SAS SFF-8087 cable. Upgrading firmware was the first thing you should have done. Have you had the same ...
