Replaced disks with larger capacity - not expanding - 23.10.1 Cobia (SOLVED)


May 30, 2011

I have a nas running SCALE 23.10.1 cobia
I replaced 2 4TB disks with 2x 8TB drives.
The smallest drive in the array is now 6TB. (these will be replaced with 8TB once budget allows)
Autoexpand is enabled on the pool. After the resilver completed I expected the pool to expand to 6T capacity per drive. It did not, stayed at 3.6T

The closest related issue I can see is this (vdev mirror not expanding)

boot-pool  autoexpand  off     default

Looking at the above, there appears to be no swap partition on the replaced disks.

To my knowledge, I replaced and resilvered all drives via the GUI. The system is an update from truenas core.
I'm uncertain why some of the drives are UUID and others SDX labels.
I am uncertain why the replaced drives do not have swap partitions. (is this a bug?)

Any clues what my next steps are to fix the expand?
Should swap partitions have been created when replaced? (I understand swap was a way to accommodate small differences in similar sized drives, which seems useful)
The forum suggested export/import each drive? Doing this from CLI will this upset truenas?

I have done expands before in core without incident.

Reinstalled TrueNAS-SCALE-
Offline the disk,
Readded disk and resilver.
Appears the partitions are now the correct size, including the 2G swap.

sdb                                                                  7.3T

Will stay on this version for a while until upstream ver gets fixed.
