    Re: Partition larger than 2 TB?

    I have now partitioned the disk with gdisk (which I simply had to install from apt-get) and it was completely like using fdisk.

    mkfs and tune2fs commands worked fine, and I have now mounted the disk which in df is shown to be of 6 TB in size.

    So I should be all good, right?

    As you might notice from /dev/sdb, I do have a partitioned and functioning /dev/sda which the system and kernel runs on. The 6 TB raid array (/dev/sdb) is for storage only, so do I need those at all?
    If the system's already booting from another disk, you needn't be concerned with them.

    It sounds like it! Try writing some files to the disk and then reading them back to be sure it's working correctly. If it is, you can mark this thread as solved.
    If I've suggested a solution to a problem and you're not the original poster, do not try my solution! Problems can seem similar but be different, and a good solution to one problem can make another worse. Post a new thread with your problem details.
