partition that had both 139s and 283s. The 139s are in ASP(2) and there
are only 6 of those. The 283s are ASP(1) and the two RAID sets there are
at the limit of 18 drives each.
After initializing the two drives (they are used) I selected 'Include in
RAID protection' in SST. I didn't read the confirmation screen closely

further review of the RAID sets I saw that the 283GB drives were now
part of a 139GB drive raid set and only that much of their capacity was
