Partitioning of a VCP node

Partitioning of a VCP node

Starting from the Q4`18 MCP release, the VCP images contain the prebuilt partitioning table. The main VM disk, which is vda, has the following partitions:

  • vda1 - 1 MB partition required for GPT

  • vda2 - 1 GB boot partition

  • vda3 - Partition with LVM

The mountpoints selection is based on the recommendations from Center for Internet Security (CIS) and inlcude the following:

  • root

  • home

  • /var/log

  • /var/log/audit

  • /tmp

  • /var/tmp

Example of a partition table for a proxy node:

root@prx01:# lsblk /dev/vda
NAME                  MAJ:MIN RM  SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
