fdisk can not handle terabyte raidbox
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:52 EDT
Description of Problem:install fails at disk partitioning when setting up large
disk raid subsystem. Unit is a Promise SX8000 with 8 160GB disk in a raid 5
config. Unit reports about 1069Gb. Seems to be a cylinder or total block size
limitation as total blocks are reported in as negative number.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How Reproducible:Happens in 7.3 also. Recreated the Raid with only 7 disks and
all is fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup raid on running 6.2 system and same limitation.
