I'm exploring Storage Pools in Windows Server 2016 and I'm trying to create one virtual disk that uses the entirety of the space available in the pool. However, it appears that it's not using all available space.
In my instance, I have 4x50Gb drives in the pool. However, when I issue a
New-VirtualDisk -UseMaximumSize, the size of the drive is only 192 Gb. Why is it not able to use the remaining 8Gb?
Is there a way for me to see what the maximum available space in the pool is at any time? Applicable to the above but also, say for instance, I add more disks into the pool and would like to expand the virtual drive. How would I know the value to pass to
Resize-VirtualDisk (annoyingly, there's no
-UseMaximumSize parameter on that cmdlet)?
