Re: [rhelv5-list] XFS with RHEL5?

iirc you will setup a new backupserver (x86), start with 15TB and grow
about 50TB.
really x86 and not x86_64 ?

What's it matter?

even your filesystem of choice  xfs  can *not* handle  > 16TB on  x86.

Re: mount failed after xfs_growfs beyond 16 TB
/ a colleague recently tried to grow a 16 TB filesystem (x86, 32bit) on/
/ top of lvm2 to 17TB. (I am not even sure if that's supposed work with/
/ linux-2.6, 32bit)/

Not supported - any metadata access past 16TB will wrap the 32 bit page
index for the metadata address space and you'll corrupt the filesystem.

That sounds pretty serious; if I was running 64-bit, I wouldn't have the option of using Knoppix or one of my 32-bit systems for recovery.

ext3 is fully compatible, it does not matter whether one chooses 32-bit or 64-bit Linux, and so my question above, "What's it matter?"
