Creating partition on new disk

Postby yoram » November 21st, 2015, 5:40 pm

Just added a new 3TB disk to my Ubuntu 12.04 server
From webmin, I try to create a new partition on the disk but always receive:
Failed to save partition : parted -s /dev/sde unit cyl mkpart primary 0 364801 failed : Error: /dev/sde: unrecognised disk label

and this is my "partitions on local disks " page (the "total Size" column is empty)
SATA device E ATA ST3000DM001-1ER1 0 IDE parameters | SMART status | Identify drive

I assume it's related to the size>2TB .

Please help

Thaks, Yoram
