RE: Add a new HardDisk

Title: RE: Add a new HardDisk

This assumes you have formated the filesystem and it is ready to mount.  Have you done that?  If not look at the newfs or mkfs commands.  Pick your filesystem type, ie ext3, reiserfs, etc and format the drive.  Then you can mount it.  If your home directory is a separate mount point already I would just edit the fstab and modify the /home line to use the new hdd that you just mounted.  I usually mount it to a temp spot, copy everything over unmount it from the temp spot, unmount the current home directory, assuming no one is using it, then just mount the new to the current spot.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

Assuming /dev/hdd1 /var/home

modify /etc/fstab to mount hdd1

#mv /home/* /var/home/
#rm -rf /home
#ln -s /var/home /home

Verify permission on new home directory

Modify paths as necessary.
