I got 2 new g200 systems each with 9 x 6.4 fmd2 drives.
On one system, I configured only 1 parity group (7+1) and a spare. The problem I got is that I can't create more than 1 pool on this configuration, even with available volumes. And with 1 pool, I can't use ThinImage (TI uses dp pool for primary, and ti pool for snapshots).
It's this limitation correct?
On the other system, I configured 2 parity groups (3+1) and a spare. I can configure one pool on each parity group available volumes (can't configure 3 pools for example). But with this configuration I'm wasting 1 drive with parity (because i'm not using 7+1).
Is this limitation correct? Or I am missing some global configuration parameter to allow more than 1 pool per parity group?
