R510 sees only 2TB of a 4TB drive

We put a 4 TB SATA drive (Hitachi HDS724040ALE640) into our R510 server running Debian Squeeze. The OS sees only a 2 TB drive.

Is this a limitation of the controller in the server, and is there an update available?

Below is an excerpt of commands which hopefully show all relevant info.

Thanks for any help,
