Mac server raid help

    I saved a mac server and 7tb raid from the trash. when i run a single fibre cable from the raid to the server, and i access the raid through disk utility (in os x 10.4.2) it says there is only 2.7tb. I realize I'm only accessing half the array but shouldn't I see 3.5tb? what am i doing wrong, i have green lights across the board, does that indicate all drives are working properly?

    it is 14 x 500GB RAID

    Raid Help

    First, I presume the machine you are hooking it up to has a Fiber card installed? If it's like the Promise I have there should be two connections on the back of the raid, (Dual Channel) You then have to use the fiber utility to format.
    I'd like to find trash like that!
