| Hi,
| I have a 24TB RAID6 disk with a GPT partition table on it. I need to
| partition it into 2 partitions one of 16TB and 1 of 8TB to put ext4
| filesystems on both. But I really need to do this remotely. ( if I
| can
| get to the site I could use gparted )
| Now fdisk doesn't understand GPT partition tables and pat

Is there any reason why you can't just use a whole disk LVM PV and then use LVM to create VGs and LVs of the required size?
