hey mikey99,

Thanks for share
"In RHEL6, you should be using sector units, not cylinders. Add a few extra flags to your fdisk command, -c to turn off DOS Compatibility mode (you don't need it), and -u to change units to sectors not cylinders."

But after creating partition on OS disk in command line need reboot but in GUI no need to reboot after creating partition

so their is something which works in GUI which should be enable in command line so i am on my way if i crack it i will shared if someone have done it then plz shard

Hi,mikey99

Thanks to brief

In RHEL6, you should be using sector units, not cylinders. Add a few extra flags to your fdisk command, -c to turn off DOS Compatibility mode (you don't need it), and -u to change units to sectors not cylinders.


but the issue of creating partition at OS drive remain same in command line & in GUI no need to reboot i am working on that
if i resolve it then i will share it or if someone else done it then share it.

Hi,

First time I also get this error and found that, On which drive OS resides and when trying to partprobe it will give you error.
In that case reboot is required to update in kernel. this is application only for local drive.

Thanks-

I'm re-opening this thread after quiet sometime, and hope I get some reply

Regarding what you have said about partprobe in CLI & GUI modes, I didn't find any difference. I see the same error on RHEL6 Desktop too.

#partprobe -s /dev/sda
Warning: the kernel failed to re-read the partition table on /dev/sda (Device or resource busy). As a result, it may not reflect all of your changes until after reboot.

Obviously, partx -a /dev/sda did the trick, but I want to know how did it work for you in GUI? Thanks
