We just got in a few server-class drives. They’re Seagate Constellations, 3TB. I went to partition and format, and did a mklabel gpt in parted.
Ooops. It claims Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B After data sheet that doesn’t tell me, and a long wait*, I spoke to a Seagate tech, who agreed that it *is* 4k physical.
This is CentOS 6.2
Anyone know any way to correct this, or if it’s a problem if I manually align the partition to sector 64, or 1M?
