Hello,

Does CentOS 5.4 support large ( > 2 TB) external storage devices using
GPT (GUID Partition Tables), while the main OS resides on smaller hard
disks using MBR. In this scenario, what can be the largest possible
size of an ext3 partition (and filesystem) which can be created on the
storage array under CentOS 5.4 ?

Thanks,

Manish
