Can't specific 3.5TB iSCSI target from 4TB volumne_1

from web gui I had to create the 3 (TB), not 3.5.

But when I enter “4”  with intension use all 4 TB raid1 as iSCSI target.

I got error message  saying “can’t not create volumen bigger then 4 TB”.

Looks this is a GUI bug.

the “3.5” input error message is “Enter a positive integer”.

Not a GUI bug. 4 terabyte is not equal to 4 tebibyte. Use this calculator page to figure out how many tebibytes is in a terabyte -> http://www.unitjuggler.com/convert-memory-from-TB-to-TiB.html

Also, keep in mind that a 4TB drive loses little bit of space reserved for the firmware and OS, just like on a PC you don’t get to use the max space of a hard drive…you lose space for installation of Windows.

The best way to accurately find out how much space is available, is to SSH into EX2 and use the command: df -h

I didn’t desicribe the the problem correctly.

The bug is that GUI field doesn’t take fraction number(like 1.5) only integer can be specified in the input field. 

Aah, ok…I see. Well, the issue can be solved very simply. Just change the unit from TB to GB using the dropdownand then use 1000GB for every TB you want to use…so for 3.5TB just use 3500GB.
