I got “Could not allocate requested partitions: requested size exceeds maximum allowed” while installing RHEL on a SAN.
Linux seems to be having a max partition size of 2.2TB (2TB).
- Stop partitioning, click ‘back’
- Go to a text terminal (alt-f2)
- Find the device you want to put a 2GB+ system on: ls -al /dev/mapper/
- Type parted /dev/device-id-you-just-found
- mklabel gpt
- Go back to installation and create a 2TB+ volume :)
