Mounting nvme drive as storage pool



Previous post on reddit showed a tutorial for adding nvme as storage pool: 


Many people succeeded based on the comments. But I'm running into a weird issue:

root@Andy_NAS_84TB:~# synopartition --part /dev/nvme0n1 12
        Device   Sectors (Version8: SupportRaid)
 /dev/nvme0n11   4980480 (2431 MB)
 /dev/nvme0n12   4194304 (2048 MB)
Reserved size:    260352 ( 127 MB)
Primary data partition will be created.

WARNING: This action will erase all data on '/dev/nvme0n1' and repart it, are you sure to continue? [y/N] y

root@Andy_NAS_84TB:~# /sbin/sfdisk -N1 -uS -q -f -j2048 -z4980480 -tfd -F /dev/nvme0n1
[/dev/nvme0n1] is a partition
root@Andy_NAS_84TB:~# fdisk -l /dev/nvme0n1
Disk /dev/nvme0n1: 465.8 GiB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

I've tried

synopartition --part /dev/nvme0n1 [1-12]

sfdisk -N[1-5] -uS -q -f -j2048 -z4980480 -tfd -F /dev/nvme0n1

The other nvme /dev/nvme1n1 is also tested. Same issue.

Any suggestions?
