You have run into the 2TB limit for a DOS Paritition Table. You must use GPT
(GUID Partition Table) to overcome the limit. You can't use fdisk for that
since it has no GPT support. An alternative would be parted . I'm not sure
how this can be done without data loss. An alternative would be to not use
partitions at all and create the XFS directly on /dev/sdb.
This is not really an XFS issue but an partitioning issue.
