I added a 1TB disk to each of my 1050 nodes. I followed the guide and added them correctly. Just noticing that in hyper-v though it still shows the 6th disk as completely free. It's offline and added as a pass-through like the other 5 disks are to the CVM.

I followed page 134 of the Platform_Administration_Guide-NOS_v4_0.pdf. I only have a single storage pool so it looked like it added them automatically to the correct storage pool ids. I just want to make sure it's added right.

How do I set the Location so it's the correct slot too? I wasn't able to see that. Here's the output of my ncli disk list

btw, if I try to add them again they say duplicate ID so I know they're added.

So diskpart looks normal today. Guess it needed to balance the disk.

Is there anyway to set this as slot 6 for the location attribute of ncli disk list? Other than that everything looks correct.

Add the disks to the pool using the "add-all-free-disks" ncli option....

So the disks are all added to the pool correctly already. I have 2 issues. Location should be 6 and the 4.0.1 GUI under hardware-diagram doesn't show the disk listed either but it shows everywhere else.

Nope, I'm all good. Thanks for following up.
