hello... i have been trying (for many moons now) to create a filesystem larger than 1TB. I've had a variety of RAID controllers in my boxes, and I have 250GB drives, so it adds up quick. I've also tried doing this with vinum, but that fails too.
i've searched for help on this topic, and i've found lots of info, but nothing substantial. I've read everything from it being a sysinstall issue, to needing new versions of the CLI tools (newfs, dd, disklabel), to newfs using the wrong variable type to store fssize, to having to update to fbsd 5.x to use UFS2. Other reports say it's a softlimit imposed somewhere, some say to make the frag size in newfs to 1024B for a 2TB max volume, it has to be dedicated, it has to be non-dedicated... the list of suggestions goes on and on. none seem to work. I can't find anything in the handbook regarding filesystems over 1TB. I even asked around on IRC, nobody could help. I'm sure I'm not the only one making a filesystem over a terabyte, it doesn't seem that hard. can anybody provide me with good information regarding this issue?? Or maybe point to a good website that explains it (if such a beast exists). please help. LaCie just released a 1TB drive. It's only a matter of time before others follow suit. This process/softlimit/bug/documentation error should be hammered out so we can all benefit. thanks for any help /eric _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
