I initially installed 4 HDD's in the prox-ve01 server that were a mix of old hard drives from other computers that were still good but not being used.
- 250GB Seagate (Root filesystem "/")
- 300GB Seagate (Unmounted)
- 500GB WD (Unmounted - pulled from blackarmor "Downloads")
- 500GB WD (Unmounted - pulled from blackarmor "Storage")
I'm in the process of saving anything I may need off the 2 500GB drives and converting them to local storage for proxmox vm's and containers. As these drives were both in a Windows 7 machine in a prior life they need to be converted to linux partitions and filesystems from NTFS. This can be done via fdisk/cfdisk and mkfs commands.
# Delete partitions and create a new Linux partition root@prox-ve01$ fdisk /dev/sdc # Follow prompts to delete old partitions and create a new one of the Linux type. # Make new file system of type ext4 on the new Linux partition with label "storage-1" # -c Check the device for bad blocks before creating the file system. # If this option is specified twice, then a slower read-write test is used instead of a fast read-only test. root@prox-ve01$ mkfs.ext4 -c -c -L /storage-1 /dev/sdc1
