I've been using Ubuntu for a while but didn't really paid attention on partitioning and just accepted the defaults.
But on a new project we plan on setting up two old servers HP DL380 G3 both would have identical components with 2 x RAID 1 SCSI volumes at 72GB. This will be setup with DRBD for failover.
The server's main function will only serve as a firewall using IPTables no other apps will be installed except for some network monitoring tools, then 2 or 3 additional users maybe.
Due to the limited disk space I want to keep the partition simple.
/ (root) /var/log (mostly for firewall logs) (swap)
Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
