I hope this is the right 'exchange' to ask in.
I work in a research group, we have no SA's etc. monitoring our servers. We have total access to them, and decide what happens or doesn't happen on them. So obviously we are quite dangerous! I'll ask the following question so we don't cause our server to explode!
So... we got a new hard disk for a server today, we've installed it, formatted it, its now sitting in the server ready for use. I was wondering whats the 'best practice' with regards to setting the disk up for use.
The server itself is used by everyone in the group, therefore we all have our own home directories which we like to keep somewhat private (datasets, code etc.) We were thinking of just making everyone an individual directory on the new disk and putting an alias to it in their home directory.
Can anyone recommend what the 'best practice' for this type of situation is?
