CentOS Linux Parted Error: Unable to open /dev/sdc – unrecognised disk label

While rebuilding a large RAID 5 logical drive I had to use parted instead of fdisk. It has been awhile since I had to build a logical drive that was over 2TB so it had been quite awhile since I have used parted which will perform the same basic functions as fdisk and more. Anyhow when first attempting to use parted to create a partition table on the logical volume sitting on top of an Adaptec RAID card with multiple 2TB drives configured as RAID 5 on CentOS Linux I ran into an error. The resolution is easy but needed to note for myself as much as anything else.
