What is /dev/mapper/vg_fog-lv_root and why is it so small?

    In my fstab, it’s mounted on the root of my filesystem, and has 50 Gb available. However, it also seems to hold the image uploads, and my systems’ images are much larger than 50 Gb.

    OS is CentOS 6.5, fully updated
    FOG v is 1.11

    When FOG installs, it creates a directory in the root filesystem as /images which would be mounted on the root of the drive or / as you’re seeing.

    If you need it to load to a different disk you can very simply. Just mv the /images to a folder on a filesystem that has much more space. My guess is /home in your case is also on it’s own filesystem labeled as:
