Stumbled about a problem with gpt:
[root@someserver ~]# parted /dev/sdb GNU Parted 2.1 Using /dev/sdb Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands. (parted) print Model: VMware Virtual disk (scsi) Disk /dev/sdb: 8619GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: msdos Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 32.3kB 2022GB 2022GB primary lvm
I would need to create (one or more) additional partitions using msdos format. As far as I know msdos can only store up to 2 TB per partition.
How can I add additional partitions using the maximal amount per msdos partition?
Would a simple call to
mkpart logical 0% 100% be enough?
