 Jeff, this did not work for me. This is the resulting anaconda kickstart
 config as saved during installation:

#part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=102
#part / --fstype ext3 --size=20480
#part swap --size=10240
#part pv.100000 --noformat --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sdb
#volgroup vol0 --pesize=32768 pv.100000

 I'm also using lvcreate -l 100%FREE in %post, but the result is still 8TB
 only ("Total free space is ... 1.1TiB").

# gdisk -l /dev/sdb
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.6.6

Partition table scan:
  MBR: protective
  BSD: not present
  APM: not present
  GPT: present

Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT.
Disk /dev/sdb: 19528908800 sectors, 9.1 TiB
Logical sector size: 512 bytes
Disk identifier (GUID): E04DF17F-35AC-42E9-B02B-3513C4EB5772
Partition table holds up to 128 entries
First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 19528908766
Partitions will be aligned on 8-sector boundaries
Total free space is 2286131368 sectors (1.1 TiB)

Number  Start (sector)    End (sector)  Size       Code  Name
   1              34        41943073   20.0 GiB    0700
   2        41943074        62914593   10.0 GiB    8200  
   3        62914594     17242777398   8.0 TiB     8E00
