I asked this of mkp but he doesn't know off the top of his head: is there a
limit to the XFS fs size? I've tried creating one on just over 1.1TB with
[root@sdssdp6 /]# fdisk -l /dev/md6
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/md6p1 1 280147712 1120590846 83 Linux
[root@sdssdp6 /]# mkfs.xfs /dev/md6
mkfs.xfs: can't get size for data subvolume
/* blocksize */ [-b log=n|size=num]
/* data subvol */ [-d agcount=n,agsize=n,file,name=xxx,size=num,
/* inode size */ [-i log=n|perblock=n|size=num,maxpct=n]
/* log subvol */ [-l agnum=n,internal,size=num,logdev=xxx]
/* naming */ [-n log=n|size=num|version=n]
/* label */ [-L label (maximum 12 characters)]
/* prototype file */ [-p fname]
/* quiet */ [-q]
/* version */ [-V]
/* realtime subvol */ [-r extsize=num,size=num,rtdev=xxx]
<devicename> is required unless -d name=xxx is given.
Internal log by default, size is scaled from 1,000 blocks to 32,768 blocks
based on the filesystem size. Default log reaches its largest size at 1TB.
This can be overridden with the -l options or using a volume manager with a
<num> is xxx (bytes), or xxxb (blocks), or xxxk (xxx KB), or xxxm (xxx MB)
<value> is xxx (512 blocks).
>From recent comments made by Steve,
(http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/mail_archive/0107/msg00727.html) it sounds
that since I'm trying to make a fs with inode numbers > 32 bits, I might be
FWIW, I'm using 2.4.5 kernel with R1.0.1.
