9 Sit back and just think a minute:
10 You have a fullfledged hardware raid. You set it up to be a RAID5
11 array. What do you expect to see?
13 I would expect to see one HDD, since the Hardware RAID takes care of
14 all the little, pesky things you need to setup a RAID.
16 So I state there there is absolutely no problem anywhere.
18 Go ahead and do everything you like with that sda it your raid.
20 BTW: Some investigation should have revealed that the capacity of sda
21 is larger than that from one single disk...
