Unable to fully utilize RAID disk?
I just tried installed RHEL 4 update 4 on a Rackable box I just received. System has 12 disks, so I created a large raid 5 volume using the system's raid utility. It created a volume that was 4.2Tb, which I kickstarted the OS on top of. During the kickstart I only created the / and /boot partitions figuring I would add the rest of the space later, but it seems that I'm unable to fully utilize all of the space. A fdisk reveals this
[root@et01 ~]# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 4999.8 GB, 4999893483520 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 607869 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

/dev/sda5 1562 73171 575201682+ 83 Linux
showing 607869 cylinders, but fdisk only allows me to go up to 73171 cylinders? Is there any way to use all of the cylinders here, hopefully without having to rebuild the system completely?
Thanks in advance,
