I created a CentOS 5.6 Guest OS Virtual Machine. I made the first disk 10GB, I am rapidly outgrowing it.
It was suggested that I make disks for my
/home directories and move them so I can better manage the disks for backing up and what not.
This sounds like a good idea.
I know how to create the disks in Virtual Box. I have dug around Google and the internet in general and all my attempts at doing this have failed. Snapshots are awesome!
I can get the drives
fdisked, and I have had limited success mounting them to
/mnt/opt, but even in single user mode (
init 1 ) I can't get the entire contents of the directories to move over, and then the machine won't reboot correctly.
cd /var cp * -ax /mnt/var
/var directory in particular is not wanting to move everything to the new location.
How do I format, mount and move the
/home to my new disks?
