-Tutorial- Expand locallv

Postby davidedwardgill » Sun Nov 18, 2012 2:29 pm

I wanted to make a quick tutorial for the first real question on setting up uda.
Expanding the local volume so you can upload some images.
This tutorial assumes you already have network access, and access to web interface.

First we will attempt the way that as I understand should work, but as of yet has not worked for me.
Log into you UDA via the http configuration page click System, Disk Space, locallv, extend, [select a disk], Apply.
Very likely thi will not work for you, and you will need to fallow the steps below.

Shutdown uda.

Via your virtual machine manager create a second disk. Please reference the documentation for the virtual appliance you are using on how to do this.
VMWare Player: http://www.vmware.com/support/ws5/doc/w ... rtual.html
VMWare Workstation: http://www.vmware.com/support/ws5/doc/w ... rtual.html
VrtualBox: http://www.sysprobs.com/add-sata-hard-d ... virtualbox
Feel free to request documentation for your virtual appliance, and it will be added above.
I recommend adding a SCSI, or SATA drive, as that is what my documentation is going to reference.

Start the UDA virtual machine.
Login as root.

To create your drive: #fdisk /dev/sdb. If you do not have a sdb, please research how Linux drive configuration functions to find you device id.
You will be dropped into the fdisk window, input [n] without the brackets to create a new partition.
Enter [p] to make it a primary partition.
Enter [1]to make partition 1.
Press enter without anything else to accept starting the partition at sector 1, and a second time to accept the default last sector of the partition being the last available on the drive.
After this you will be dropped back into fdisk 'prompt', enter [w] to write your changes to this disc.
When complete you will be dropped back into the Linux prompt.
Now create a file system on your new drive by using #mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1

Now comes the easy part. Log into you UDA via the http configuration page click System, Disk Space, locallv, extend, sdb1, Apply.
It will now go through and add the disk space to locallv, allowing you to upload some images via the upload button in the web tool.

For those of you who know UDA better than me please respond with what corrections need o be made.
