XFS exceeds msdos-partition-table-imposed maximum


When creating XFS partitions using parted you may encounter the error sectors exceeds the msdos-partition-table-imposed

Error: partition length of 5264917709 sectors exceeds the msdos-partition-table-imposed maximum of 4294967295

The above error occurs if a msdos partition exists and you try to create a new partition over it.

To resolve this issue you will need to remove the existing partition on the partition using the “rm” command in parted. Then try recreating the partition once more.
