Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 895434
Default disk image size for RHEL6 is too small
Last modified: 2013-07-11 15:46:13 EDT
When creating a new VM with virt-manager with OS type "Linux" and Version "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6", the default size of the disk image is 8GB. However, attempting to install the "Basic Server" configuration of the RHEL 6.4 beta on an 8GB image results in a report that there is insufficient disk space:
You need more space on the following file systems:
119 M on /
For the "Database Server" configuration there is 204MB more needed, for the "Web Server" 347MB, and for the "Identity Management Server" 330MB. Desktop configurations fail for lack of space at an even earlier stage, but this is less of a concern. The "Minimal" configuration can be installed on an 8GB image without issue.
The default disk image size should be increased at least to a level where a "Basic Server", and preferably all of the default server configurations, can be installed. 10GB might be a good round number, and it works fine.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
We've got a catchall bug tracking these types of issues in the upstream tracker.
