I am trying to make a drive on 6.36 TB placed on 3 disks. (2x 3 TB and 1x 1TB) but I cannot make it larger than what can be placed on one disk.
When I want to make a Virtual drive I cannot make it larger than one disk 2.72 TB even when the storage pool have 6.36 available.
Are there any limitation to how large volumes you can make in the RC or what might I do wrong?

I assume you are using Storage Spaces.
What kind of virtual drive are you trying to create? You won't be able to create a mirrored or parity drive >2.72TB with these disks. It would only be possible to create a simple volume >2.72TB.I have a 10TB virtual parity disk across 23 underlying disks, so there is no limit in the RC that should be affecting you.

I have tried to create a simple volume and a parity volume and they both ends up with less than one disks in size.

I was able to solve this by using the normal disk management interface under computer Management.
From there I could make the Spanned volume as I wanted.
