What have you done to try to get it working?


Last I recall drives larger than 2TB weren't "officially" supported by
Red hat so it may not be perfect.

The last infortrend systems I used supported exporting logical drives
of smaller sizes which worked for me.

Last I heard you couldn't boot off of drives larger than 2TB with a
normal bios(with Intel's EFI I think you can?).
