Creation a 16 To LVM volume on linux

Hi,

I have a MSA2000 with 16 To of space disk connected to a linux server (Red Hat ES 4). Is it possible to create a LVM module of 16 To ? It seems not to be possible :(.

Thank you,

Best regards

Re: Creation a 16 To LVM volume on linux

Is this one 16 TeraByte/TeraOctets MSA volume?

How did you try to create the LVM setup? I don't have the LVM limits available right now, but note that a MBR-style partition table can only describe disks up to 2 TeraBytes/TeraOctets. You need to switch to GPT-style:
