Doc Text:
Previously, the partitioning scheme for the RHV-M Virtual Appliance included two primary partitions, "/" and swap. In this release, the disk partitioning scheme has been modified to match the scheme specified by NIST. The updated disk partitions are as follows: /boot 1G (primary) /home 1G (lvm) /tmp 2G (lvm) /var 20G (lvm) /var/log 10G (lvm) /var/log/audit 1G (lvm) swap 8G (lvm) / 6G (primary)
