Erro creating a new ZFS volume?

Hey all, I am trying to create a new volume on my FreeNas system (running 8.2 release p1) with 6 2TB drives (WD Caviar green 2TB drives). I have the freenas install up and running, and it worked fine in tests with some smaller drives. But when I try and create a new ZFS2 RAIDZ2 volume using all 6 of these drives, it fails with an error of "Error Getting Total Space". Same thing with a ZFS volume.

If I destroy the volume and try again, only 4 of the drives show up in the list of available drives. But when I reboot, all of the drives show up on the boot check and don't report any errors.

The system is built around a Jetway NF99FL-525 1.8GHz Intel processor. The drives are connected to the built-in SATA ports on the motherboard.

Any ideas?
