I was trying to create new partition from existing unallocated space on /dev/sda, but whenever I set the 'start and end', I get
location outside of device error. Below is the full output:
root@server01:/# parted /dev/sda

If I set the
End? as 100%, I'm able to create new partition. This leads to question on how to create multiple partitions if there is requirement to create 3 partitions with 100G, 500G and 500G.
