I tried something similar and ended up with a similar error. As far as I
understand the documentation the answer in your case is "5".


"... When expanding distributed replicated and distributed dispersed
volumes, you need to add a number of bricks that is a multiple of the
replica or disperse count. ..."

One suboptimal idea could be: divide the new device in 5 partitions and
add these 5 partitions as new bricks and when you get the next device,
move one of this bricks to the new device, and so on ... until you have
all 5 additional devices.

I'm curious for other ideas.

Kind regards
