You must not access an individual disk when it is part of a fake raid
array; you must instead partition the array as a whole ( e.g.
/dev/mapper/somethingorther ). It appears to be a disk that claims to
be larger than it actually is. That old version of parted refuses to
handle it, so you could also use a more recent release ( Ubuntu 15.04
should do ).
