Add new datastore


I added a new datastore where it is mount to another path. However, it looks just create a directory under /var/lib/one/datastores

So next steps is should I create symbol link to the path which located?


You have to mount an actual drive to that partition. Supposing you have a drive like /dev/sdb1 and the create datastore in opennebula is /var/lib/one/datastores/100 you need to do something like that:

mount /dev/sdb1 /var/lib/one/datastores/100

Keep in mind that /dev/sdb1 should be formatted with a valid fs type like ext4,xfs etc

hello, you can also create symlink, it works just fine

Remember also to setup de right permissions once the device it’s mounted oneadmin:oneadmin
