    8TB Sun/hgst drive showing as 7.9TB (and not 8.0TB like others)

    This might be an issue with Freenas. I was able to use similar tools on a Proxmox 6.0 (Debian) box to fix the same disks. This was using an LSI SAS3008 HBA as well. Formatted to 512 byte sectors with: # sg_format --format --size=512 -v -e /dev/sg0 Size after format: # sg_readcap /dev/sg0 READ...
