Hi,

I have an issue where I set a 2TB Disk on VMware and tried to install Centos 6.5 with a single 2TB partition.  When it was done it only gave me 56GB

I ran the fdisk -l and this is what I got:
[root@3R-FTP-SVR01 ~]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 2199.0 GB, 2199023254528 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 267349 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000afa6c

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          64      512000   83  Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2              64      267350  2146969600   8e  Linux LVM

Disk /dev/mapper/vg_3rftpsvr01-lv_root: 53.7 GB, 53687091200 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 6527 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000


Disk /dev/mapper/vg_3rftpsvr01-lv_swap: 4227 MB, 4227858432 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 514 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000


Disk /dev/mapper/vg_3rftpsvr01-lv_home: 2140.6 GB, 2140579823616 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 260244 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

How can create the 2TB partition and use it for vsftpd?

does this mean that the full partition is 2TB and the file system is only showing 50GB until it needs more

I figured it out.  The home directory is the folder with 1.8TB.  so for the ftp users (only 2 of them) I just created a directory and changed their home to that so that they can share files
