I have a box running redhat 7 for email & some local samba stuff, and
local apache stuff.
Running low on space, since users have _seen the light_ on backups, etc,
so I have another ide HDD to install.
question is, how do I incorporate this extra space into my existing
I use /var/export/samba/ .. structure for the samba stuff, which I
*could* move the the new disk
I have one /var partition which is used for :
Samba - all under /var/export/samba/
MailScanner, sendmail, qpopper- under
How can I restructure this, without losing any data.
i.e. I want to :
1. Shutdown box
2. insert new drive (probably as hdb, as I currently have one hda drive
and one hdc cdrom.)
3. power up box
4. somehow partition extra drive, and move data form existing structure
to new mountpoints
I dont know how to do this.... If i create a new /var/spool partition,
how do I get at the data in the current /var/spool directory ?
Excuse the question if its stupid, but I really dont know.
