    Default harddisk partitioning for NE

    Hello,

    we are soon going to install the NE Trial Version of ZCS. The test
    machine will have 2 harddisks (not mirrored) with probably the
    following partitions/filesystems:

    /boot
    /
    /var
    /home
    /usr


    Questions:
    1.
    Is this partitioning ok, or would it be a good idea to define
    additional dedicated partitions/filesystems for ZCS?

    2.
    What partitions should be installed on which disks?


    Thank's a lot for any feedback!

    Martin

    Make sure it's not RAID 5. RAID 5 isn't fast enough for Zimbra, and Java threads time out causing trouble.

    You can have /opt/zimbra (Zimbra's Home DIR) under / with no issues at all. However, depending on how you have your disaster recovery plan, some people/users like to have a separate partition for Zimbra in case your root HD fails for some reason.

    As far as filesystem type, we have tested most with EXT3.

    Good luck, and if you need anything else, just hollar.
