Thanks for the reply Denis.

I kinda figured that GPT is required.

So how does one install XCP with a GPT partion instead of an MBR partition?

Hi Jessy,

4TB storage in RAID10

We installed XCP 1.0 and it was successful except that XCP only sees 2TB
of storage.
Output of df -h:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 4.0G 1.5G 2.3G 39% /
none 380M 0 380M 0% /dev/shm

the df output just tells you the size of the dom0 system partition. The VM are stored on a lvm partition and you should use vgdisplay to see what you have there.

Output of fdisk -l:

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util
fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

fdisk cannot deal with GPT partition table (see warning above), and GPT is required for partition above 2GB. You should actually use gparted to look at such a partition table.

Any idea on how this can be resolved? Thanks in advance.
