Create big partitions on Linux

How to create a big (2.7 TB) partition with Redhat Linux?

Using fdisk and a MSDOS partition table won’t let you allocate all cylinders to your primary partition… if you encounter this problem this is the way I did it:

# parted /dev/XXX
(parted)  mklabel
New disk label type?  [gpt]? GPT
(parted) mkpart primary 0 2764G

Doing that way I created ad EFI partition table on my disk /dev/XXX and a primary partion with 2764Gigabytes on it.

Now you can use mkfs and mount it or manage that disk with LVM

  1. In realtà se dovessimo seguire lo standard GPT si deve creare una partizione anche vouta da 100 MB formattata FAT32
