Ubuntu Server: Partitioning large hardware raids

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I am trying to set up a storage server which has a hardware raid controller and 15x3 TB harddrives. This server is a dedicated server from hetzner.de and I am using the default setup routine (installing an preconfigured image) for setup. The tool for installing the images does not allow partitions with more than 2TB, so I configured it as followed: 100GB / 512MB /boot 32GB swap My plan was to create another partition when the operating system is installed. After installation, I used gdisk /dev/sda (which is the only hard drive avaiable) to create another partition with the remaining stor (HowTos)
