comment Upgrading RAID controller to 4kn - do I have to reinitialize the array to use 4kn?
So your answer is incorrect: it is not true that "disks are either 512e or 4kn and it's impossible to switch them". Disks are either 512-byte native or 4kb-native, and certain 4kb-native disks may choose to support 512-byte emulation. If they support 512-byte emulation, they can switch between this mode and 4kn depending on what the disk controller supports; they'll prefer 4kn, but fall back to 512e if they have to.

comment Upgrading RAID controller to 4kn - do I have to reinitialize the array to use 4kn?
As stated in my question, the disks are 4kn, but they are able to fall back into 512e when the controller doesn't support 4kn. The current controller (RAID card) doesn't support 4kn, so they are currently operating in 512e mode. If I upgrade the RAID controller to one that does support 4kn, my question is, do the disks automatically start getting used in 4kn mode? Note that 512e means "512-byte emulation" -- it is impossible to have a disk that supports 512-byte emulation that isn't 4k native, because if it's not 4k native, then it's 512-byte native, not 512-byte emulation.

comment Validation and Source Tables for T-code MB52 in ECC
SAP itself is completely off-topic for Super User. SU is for "computer enthusiasts and power users". When we use the term "user", we mean regular home users running home software, such as productivity software, web browsers, operating systems, content creation software, entertainment software, and so on. Enterprise finance / management software is so far out of range of acceptable topics for SU that I voted to close it. Please stop asking questions about SAP on SuperUser.

comment Changing partition table, Centos 6.3 on Hetzner Server
I complained to Hetzner about installimage's limitation of not supporting GPT a while ago and they said they were working on adding GPT support but it might be a while. Meanwhile you can edit a local copy and make the needed changes (if you're brave); it's just a perl script.
