Re: ext3 partition problems w/Apple Xserve RAID

I’m running Red Hat AS 4 on a Dell PowerEdge 1950. It connects to an Apple Xserve RAID via a Qlogic QLE2460 card. I am able to create a 4TB ext3 partition with no problems and use it fine. When the system power drops or it’s rebooted, the file system can’t be mounted again. It looks like the partition table is getting corrupted. Here is some of the doc I gathered:

Disk geometry for /dev/sdb: 0.000-4292376.000 megabytes

Disk label type: msdos

Bingo. That's your problem. You have to use a gpt disk label
for partitions this large. I had the identical problem
and I was able to fix it without loosing a single bit.
I described it in a posting to this group on 3/14/2007.
(I'll send it to you directly).
