Hey all, wondering if anyone could help with suggestions;
We need to put about 50-100GB of data onto around 500 PCs, onto their second hard disk. We could upload a new image with the second disk as a multiple partition image, but this isn’t resizable (and it would be ideal to shrink the image down and then expand to the full disk size once finished). RAW is impossible - we have 1TB drives.
So is it possible to target a second disk on the PCs and multicast that way? I saw “Group Primary Disk” as an option - so this would be /dev/sdb, logically - but would this work if all the disk was was an NTFS partition with lots of data on?
Ok, I’m to the point that I need to do a reinstall of my OS. I have ubuntu 14.04 and am getting a lot of errors on the OS. If I restart the computer a couple of times, I have to reinstall fog to get my web-interface working again. On my setup, I have a 64 GB ssd for the OS and a 2 TB hdd for all of my images. I did not set up this box, was already done when I got here. I’m not an expert in Linux, so trying to set it back up like it is hopefully won’t be a big challenge. Right now when I open the computer icon on my desktop, I see the two hard drives and then I see the file system, I can only open the file system. I don’t see anything to distinguish what is on which hard drive. So what would be the best way to go about setting this box back up so that my images continue to be stored on my bigger hdd? I am planning on going back to 12.04, a lot less problems for me.
