What is the correct scsi pass thru to get the >2 TB disk capacity?


Hi All,

I connected a 2097151 MB LUN to my RHEL4 x86 machine. To get a disk capacity my application uses scsi pass thrus. I want to know the right scsi pass thru command to get the >2 TB LUN capacity. Actually I tried with scsi passthru "Read Capacity (16)" command but no luck. I am getting the following error with "Read Capacity (16)" command.

Read Capacity (16) failed on /dev/sdq!
Sense Key = 5 = ILLEGAL REQUEST, Sense Code/Qualifier = (0x24, 0)
Request Sense Data:

Your help is appreciated.
