I recently added two physical drives into my hp server (port 2). I also add them to the raid array list, but they don't appear in it:

Raid 5 : 683GB : Disk 1,2,3,4


hpssacli status

How can I add Disk 5,6 to the raid5 array list?

is everything ok??

Appreciate for any help, Thank you.


I think you're just misreading the status display in the vSphere client.

If you took the actions to add disks and expand the logical drive, then the hpssacli tool is your source of truth.

And for the vSphere client, it's reflecting the same information, but I bet the column isn't wide enough to show the additional disk numbers :)

  • oh, the column is wide enough, be sure! do you wanna bet ??! :D – Pedram Sep 24 '19 at 11:30
  • thank you @ewwhite, please see the updated question;) – Pedram Sep 24 '19 at 11:37

This issue was fixed after restarting the host (ESXi).
