I've just created a LUN and Target on my NAS, the from windows server, used iSCSI initiator to mount it.

Disk appears in disk manager Disabled.

Using diskpart i remove readonly attrib and created partition for the size of the disk (unalloc)

diskpart threw an exception:

No usable free extent could be found. It may be that there is insufficient
free space to create a partition at the specified size and offset. Specify
different size and offset values or don't specify either to create the
maximum sized partition. It may be that the disk is partitioned using the MBR disk 
partitioning format and the disk contains either 4 primary partitions, (no
more partitions may be created), or 3 primary partitions and one extended
partition, (only logical drives may be created).

And still went on to split the drive.

enter image description here

diskpart .. select disk=6 .. list partition shows none.

How can i "merge" these partitions and create a single simple volume?

I've tried quite a few things from creating the LUN to various diskpart ops.



Sorry, found a solution

select disk=6
convert GPT

MBR default 2TB limit.
