I have made
/dev/sdb which is a 16 TB disk using hardware RAID, where I am temped to put XFS directly on
/dev/sdb without making partitions. In the future will I need to expand this to double the size.
The hardware is an HP ProLiant DL380 Gen 9 with 12 SAS disk trays in the front.
One advantage of not making partitions is that a reboot isn't needed, but are things different on >2 TB disks?
Do I need to have a GPT, or can I run into trouble when expanding the RAID array and XFS without one?
