Hi all-

I recently added a 4th 750GB disk to my existing 1.5TB 3ware RAID5 volume, in an attempt to bring my total capacity up to ~2.25TB (4x750GB RAID5).

I successfully used the 3ware 'tw-cli' utility to perform "Online Capacity Expansion." The controller migrated the existing data across all 4 disks, and it now reports a total volume capacity of 2095.44GB. Excellent.

So, the issue I'm having is with getting FreeBSD 7.0-Release to recognize the additional space. I've seen scant few articles on the subject, the best of which is here:


My primary issue right now is that when I attempt to run disklabel on the volume (/dev/da0) in order to get my calculations for fdisk, i get:

# disklabel /dev/da0
disklabel: disks with more than 2^32-1 sectors are not supported

and when I attempt it on the slice, i get:

# disklabel /dev/da0s1
disklabel: /dev/da0s1: no valid label found

What's the trick here?

Thanks in advance,
Darren David


OK, I discovered gpt. Here's the output:

# gpt show /dev/da0
       start        size  index  contents
           0           1         MBR
           1          62
          63  2929629402      1  MBR part 165
  2929629465  1464835815

Can anyone please give me some insight as to where to go from here?
