When are 4Kn drives expected to be supported? I have the same 8tb drives but as SATA.

 

Working on getting samples.  Won't be until 6.4 series.

@limetech you probably know this already, but you can emulate a 4k native disk with qemu, AFAIK behavior is the same as the real disks:

 

Mar 20 17:26:29 Tower kernel: sd 1:0:0:0: [sda] 805306368 4096-byte logical blocks: (3.30 TB/3.00 TiB)
 sfdisk /dev/sda

Welcome to sfdisk (util-linux 2.28.2).
Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them.
Be careful before using the write command.

Checking that no-one is using this disk right now ... OK

Disk /dev/sda: 3 TiB, 3298534883328 bytes, 805306368 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 4096 = 4096 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes

After trying to add it to the array:

 

Mar 20 17:27:07 Tower emhttp: writing GPT on disk (sda), with partition 1 offset 64, erased: 0
Mar 20 17:27:07 Tower emhttp: shcmd (118): sgdisk -Z /dev/sda &> /dev/null
Mar 20 17:27:08 Tower emhttp: shcmd (119): sgdisk -o -a 64 -n 1:64:0 /dev/sda |& logger
Mar 20 17:27:09 Tower kernel: sda: sda1
Mar 20 17:27:09 Tower root: Creating new GPT entries.
Mar 20 17:27:09 Tower root: The operation has completed successfully.
Mar 20 17:27:09 Tower emhttp: shcmd (120): udevadm settle
Mar 20 17:27:09 Tower emhttp: invalid partition(s)

Don't know it will work for what you need though...

 

ETA: disk can be an image or passing-trough a 512e disk using /dev/by-id/ but making it look like a 4kn disk.
