How to check if I actually moved my /images/ directory to secondary HDD
HowToGravity last edited by
I am completely new to FOG and Linux in general. Sorry if don’t understand certain Linux or FOG terms.
I want to move the directory /images/ to it’s own HDD because I have a 1TB HDD spare that I would like to be dedicated to storing images only and nothing else. I followed the direction https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Moving_your_images_directory/Adding_Storage_to_the_Images_directory, and I feel like this is what I needed to do and I followed every step that is described on there word for word. How do I check if the directory /images/ have been moved to the second HDD? How do i know that all my future images will be saved to the directory that is on the second HDD?
This is just a test run for me so any mistake I’ve made and will make will not hurt me. Currently I just have a spare 250 HDD connected to act as the 1TB i described above.
Any suggestion is appreciated.
@howtogravity OK very good. The
lsblkprogram tells us everything, and your setup is perfect. As long as when you reboot the
lsblkgives you the same values you are good to go.
So if you look at the output of
lsblkyou can see that /dev/sdb1 (the first partition on the second hard drive) is connected to (mounted on) /images. This means any files written to /images will go to your second hard drive.
The output of the
df -hprogram tells us how much disk usage you currently have/are using. Those numbers look good too.

@george1421 Okay here are the outputs.
sudo lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 232.9G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 512M 0 part /boot/efi ├─sda2 8:2 0 224.4G 0 part / └─sda3 8:3 0 8G 0 part [SWAP] sdb 8:16 0 232.9G 0 disk └─sdb1 8:17 0 232.9G 0 part /images sr0 11:0 1 1024M 0 rom sudo df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev tmpfs 795M 9.4M 786M 2% /run /dev/sda2 220G 16G 194G 8% / tmpfs 3.9G 18M 3.9G 1% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 4.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/sdb1 229G 11G 207G 5% /images /dev/sda1 511M 132K 511M 1% /boot/efi tmpfs 795M 16K 795M 1% /run/user/116 tmpfs 795M 28K 795M 1% /run/user/1000
@howtogravity OK to test if your updates are correct. Please post the output of these commands.
sudo df -h
The first command shows the block devices (i.e. storage devices) that your fog server knows about.
The second command shows how your storage devices are connected.
