people : I am facing a issue , in my FreeBSD server box the /var (85 % now) directory is going to full , no space left in this disk anymore .
But I have another disk in my box which is of 140 GB fresh disk , this I have to add so I gone through
the FreeBSD hand book of adding a new disk .
According to docs I sliced and partitioned the second disk ,
one doubt : here I created 10GB bsd partition in the second disk ,
I have to assign o assign this for /var (in my first disk /var is going to full)
Q1 ) so in /etc/fstab , the mount point what I have to specify ?
/var itself or I need to create a directory (mkdir /myspace )
and add it as the mount point in /etc/fstab ? like this
/dev/da1s1e /myspace ufs rw 2 2
/dev/da1s1e /var ufs rw 2 2
which one is correct ?
and after this editing of /etc/fstab and restarting of the machine .
Q 2 ) my serverbox how it will continue to use the newly added space ? for this I have to do any thing
some one told me that I have to copy all the contents of the /var of first disk to this newly added space
is it right ?
how to do that
Q3 ) dd /dev/da0s1d /dev/da1s1/e right ? (to copy the content from /var (/dev/da0s1d) of the first disk to the newly added space for var on the second disk (/dev/da1s1e )
Q4 ) Is it needed to install all the applications which already installed in the /var of the first disk to the newly
added space on the second disk?
please give your tips and advice to achieve what I am trying to do. Many of you may have done this
before please help with your comments
Thanks in advance for all of you
