    with 256-byte large inodes, only 128 byte sized. Unfortunately, 256
    byte is
    the default size with many recent Linux distributions.

    please help! i’ve posted on freenas forum, but no luck.

    am running a freenas server – 0.7 Khasadar (revision 4919) on an AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250 Processor. have 3 x 1TB drives in a single pool. i want to add two more drives to the box and create a new pool. i have installed the drives, but do not see them under Disks|Management|Disk|Add. i set up my FreeNAS box over 6 months ago, so maybe i’m doing something wrong. or maybe it’s not possible to do this. any help would be greatly appreciated.
