RHEL6 xfs support and RPM's


Hi,

I am new to this thread, but I have just installed RHEL6 and am trying to create an xfs file system.

I tried to do mkfs.ext4 -b8192 /dev/sdc1 but it did not work when i do a dmesg i get the following EXT4-fs (sdc1): bad block size 8192

I have 24TB that i need in one file system

I have been reading and xfs is supposed to be included in the install, however when i go to make the file system here is what i get:

# mkfs.xfs /dev/sdc1
-bash: mkfs.xfs: command not found


am i not entering the correct command?

When I go to do a yum install xfs, i am being told that there is nothing to do and i have all the packages.

Your help is greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks!!

I believe XFS support is an add-on entitlement called "Scalable filesystem support" or something similar
