Huge Storage Array 17TB partition - xfs/ext3 setup problems
I've got a large storage volume which is a Raid6 giving me 17TB usable. However, I am having significant problems trying to set it up with a filesystem as it's larger than the other two 6TB volumes that I used previously.
I have used the GPT partition type in order to deal with the large block device and created it as one large volume which I want to put either ext3 or xfs on.
Firstly, ext3 would not go beyond 8TB apparently without increasing my block size, which linux doesn't seem to want to do, so I decided to try xfs instead. So I did a basic
to create the filesystem as I'm not so familiar with xfs options like superblock spacing, stride etc..
The command returned suspiciously quickly, and when I try to mount the partition I get the error below:
I'm in Knoppix 5.1 at the moment until this is set up and it seems to have detected everything properly so far...
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/raid
mount: Argument list too long
Can anyone give any guidance or feedback on this?
