New Drive shows the incorrect size

I just bought a new drive the capacity is 12TB but the drive size shows 2.04TB. I am not sure if it's a hardware thing, I have a Dell Poweredge r410. Please help. // EDIT: It now is using GPT but still shows up as 2TB. //

It is detecting it as a 12TB but wont let me expand the 2TB to 12TB
You need to provide more technical information. Preferably CLI command output using CODE tags, with exact commands that you ran, the output you received - both successful and failures.
If you are unable to use CLI, you may be able to add sufficient amount of GUI snapshots here to provide more details about your challenge.

I've come to the conclusion its a hardware issue and I need a new storage controller. I'm going to buy the H700 Controller. Here's what I got when I typed it in. Screenshot 2023-10-18 160658.png
