We normally use
autopart for patitioning. However, it's default sizing logic does not match our needs (we want to limit the size of the
home logical volume).
When we try to manually partition the space (using
logvol) we run into the issue of not being able to make each volume group's name be based on the system (e.g.,
Does anyone have a solution for this? I initially thought we might be able to do template variables like so:
part pv.01 --size=1 --grow volgroup vg_\$(name) pv.01
The problem is if the system's name had dashes and such.
autopart deletes special characters. How do we imitate the same behavior?
