How To Do Custom Partitioning Of Disks On Compute Nodes In Exalogic Physical Environment (Doc ID 1489962.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version 1.0.0.0.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

This document provides procedure for custom partitioning of the disk on Exalogic Compute nodes in Exalogic Physical Environments running with Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software (EECS) versions 1.0.0.x.x & 2.0.0.x.x. The procedure involves reconfiguration of the disk logical volumes to relocate directories such as opt, usr, and var in the default root file system to their own logical volumes, and can be extended and customized to other directories as required. This procedure is not applicable to Exalogic virtual environments.

The target audience for this document are system administrators who are responsible for performing disk and file system management of compute nodes in an Exalogic Physical configuration.

In default Exalogic Physical Environments running with EECS versions 1.0.0.x.x & 2.0.x.x.x, the available space in the RAID-controlled SSDs is partitioned as shown below.
