Good Morning,

did anybody tried to format partitions > 3 TB partitions?

We came across a problem in sfdisk/fdisk/cfdisk that it can't handle sector 
sizes, where the numbers are >9 chars.
We tried to partition a 6.3TB Partition on an HW Raid 6 and format it later 
with xfs.
With parted it works, but with no other partition tool.
