Yes it's fine. Please see: Directly Formatting a Device on a Linux System The best practices around this have changed over time. If this is a virtual machine, the case for not using partitions is more compelling.

You can't mount it because it's a LVM Physical volume, not a logical volume. First, make a disk scan: #lvmdiskscan #lvscan Get the LV and VG names #lvdisplay You must see something like this: --- Logical volume --- LV Name /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 VG Name VolGroup00 ... Now you must mount the partition: #mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/old ...

find / -mount -type f -ls will list all files like with an output similar to ls -dils. find / -mount -type f -printf "%s %h/%f\n" will just print the size and the name. The -mount (or -xdev) option tells find to not descend into other mounted file systems (which / usually has at least a few of) and type -f makes sure only files and not directories ...

When you have a problem like this, you have to: obtain all requirements (latency, bandwidth, redundancy, reliability, security, required features...) analyse the current systems. If they are none, create test environments. Understand how all components work. Understand the current and the expected load. add system monitoring (with graphs) for both ...

Create a VM of the appropriate specification and disk size and let it live entirely in as a VM on the SAN. I'm not sure the other options you present are worth the complexity. How do you plan to take backups?

Do not do this. I repeat: Do not do this! You will get cluster headaches out of this. If metadata changes in meantime, it could cause crashes and/or invalid data returned. These filesystems are not designed to work like this. Do not use them that way. This is especially bad idea with ZFS. If you really have to, use something very very basic, without ...

Based on the output the file command: corina_annual_Linux2.4_RedHat9_2016_07_10.lnx: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.18, BuildID[sha1]=5598b66dab2a01af6570e5dbad3dcbdca5a9610c, not stripped The file name seems to indicate it is a version for Red Hat Linux 9 which ...

One reason to go for a 512 byte sector size is if you are planning to use Microsoft Windows Backup on a server. Amazingly if you use Windows 2008 (I do not know whether this has been fixed in Windows 2012 or later versions) but the backup will fail if you use the default 4k sector size on an off-the-shelf usb external hard drive! I recently purchased a new ...

I recommend excellent LizardFS and GfarmFS although I'm not sure how well they support locks.

You can use docker commit to persist the current state of your container in a new image, and start an interactive container from this image to inspect the contents. From the documentation : It can be useful to commit a container’s file changes or settings into a new image. This allows you debug a container by running an interactive shell, or to ...

As suggested, I wrote a program: https://github.com/asciiphil/quotanotify Maybe it will be useful to someone else, too.

Deletion modifies the directory, so the users need to have permission to modify the directory, not just the folders. See these Superuser questions: Linux - group member cannot delete file with rw permission Why can't I delete a file where I have group write permissions on?

With help from all comments, I wrote a python script to normalize all files recursively: #!/usr/bin/env python # coding=utf-8 import unicodedata import sys,os # Walks recursively through directory and normalizes all filenames to NFC for dirPath, subdirList, fileList in os.walk(sys.argv[1]): for fname in fileList: d = os.path.join(dirPath, ...
