We are trying to setup a private cloud on the following server specs:

Supermicro Sever Boards
Quadcore xeon
12GB mem
4TB storage in RAID10

We installed XCP 1.0 and it was successful except that XCP only sees 2TB of storage.
Output of df -h:

/dev/sda1             4.0G  1.5G  2.3G  39% /
none                  380M     0  380M   0% /dev/shm

Output of fdisk -l:

Any idea on how this can be resolved? Thanks in advance.
