Does Windows Admin Center Support Storage Pools larger than 1PB in size?

I'm having an issue with Windows Admin Center when I try to create a new Volume. The Flyout Side Window sits at gathering information for a long time until it eventually times out. After the time out, the Volume Name field shows up, but the dropdown for resiliency is empty, and there is no create button. Powershell and Server Manager allow for volume creation with no issues. I'm wondering if the issue is related to just a time out issue with WAC. WMI query is taking longer than WAC is waiting because of the number of drives in the cluster, or the pool size.

    After some research, I didn't find information about any limitation of storage pool size in Windows Admin center. And since we are hardly to have the similar environment to test for you. If you would like to do further research about this issue, it's recommended to open a case with MS.

    Below is the link to open a case with MS:

    I haven't found any information either on the maximum size of the pool that WAC supports, but I assume it should be the same as what storage spaces supports.
    After some more testing, it looks like the issue might be with WMI exhaustion within the nodes. I appreciate the help, but I'm going to keep digging. Thanks.
