[RFE] autopart should have a flag to specify which disks are used
Last modified: 2017-07-02 23:23:28 EDT
Description of problem:
If "autopart" is used as a kickstart parameter, the LVM volume group is spread across all disks.
On a system which has LUNs presented from shared storage, this means that the VG may be spread across 20+ disks, rather than just local disks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use 'autopart' in kickstart on a system with a large number of LUNs/disks presented
The VG is spread across all disks
'autopart' should have a flag which specifies that only some disks should be used, or all disks which are not multipathed
Isn't this what the "ignoredisk" kickstart command already does ?
You're right -- I missed "--onlyuse"
Tested and verified that this works.
We just need to add this to the documentation for RHV.
Ying: can we test upgrade speeds on a system with a large number of LUNs after installing with "--onlyuse sda" ?
QE can test upgrade speeds after installing with "--onlyuse sda". Right now, the largest local disk is about 3T in QE testing environment. We will try this disk firstly to see the upgrade speed, then we will try to find a larger disk, if possible, to test the upgrade speed.
