When I create a partition using parted(mkpart) giving unit as Bytes, it is creating "size given - 16896" byte sized partition. Is there any specific reason to less 16896 bytes from the partition size(in bytes) given?
Here, after creating a partition I get the partition size like:
#parted /dev/sda unit B print.
Note: These partitions are used in RAID formation. Also, observed this happens only if it is the first partition created in disk.
