without reinstalling everything from scratch, you might be able to create it with gparted.

Did you bother to put that question into Google, or look on Red Hat's website??
https://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/R...ap-adding.html

You've been asked before why you use RHEL when you're not paying for it, instead of using CentOS (which is FREE and nearly IDENTICAL). AGAIN, we will point out that you won't get updates/patches/fixes/security updates without being a PAID subscriber to the Red Hat network. You get all those things for FREE with CentOS.

Could also just make a swap file and be done with it.

May not even need either.

I agree that RH is the place you should ask.

Agreed...the swap partition and swap file are both covered in that RHEL doc, though. But you are totally right...these days, it's rare to actually USE a swap partition/file. Rule of thumb used to be make it twice as big as your total system RAM.

As I understand it ,you can only use Rh Guides with a Rh O.S
 
http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Re...e_LVM-x86.html and http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Re...titioning.html should do the trick. I like Disk Druid's interface . I will have to look into that sometime.

A good start would be for you to OPEN A NEW THREAD FOR A NEW QUESTION. This question doesn't even apply in ANY way to this thread.

This is also a VERY vague question. 'Connect' HOW? What do you want to share? How do you want to share it?? And again, since you're using RHEL, have you contacted Red Hat support?? You are paying for RHEL, right??? As has been told to you before, unless you're going to PAY for RHEL, then you shouldn't be using it, but should use CentOS instead.
