Hey there! cPanel doesn't have any control over the disks on the system as that is all handled by the operating system. Do these disks show up with "df -h" on the system directly in SSH? I'm guessing they don't or else they would show up in the second screenshot you posted.

Since that is the case, you may need to manually mount and format them to get them added. The "Formatting and mounting a non-bot disk" section of this documentation does outline the process that needs to happen in SSH in order to get the disk working on the machine:


Can you try that and see if that helps? If not, you'll likely need to reach out to Google's support to see if they can provide you with additional information.

Hello,
First of all thanks for your reply.
I checked disk partitions by running "lsblk" command and it seems the disk added on the server as "sdb" path. For reference PFA. Will Formating and mounting remove any data from the production server?

As per the provided screenshot, can you please mention the commands which I need to run one by one to farmat and mount the disk.

Unfortunately I'm not able to provide such a list of commands, as a typo or performing them in the wrong order could take the server offline.

If the disk is mounted properly, it would not affect any of the active data on the machine.
