I have a my / partition which is nearly full /opt is also on the same partition and is occupying almost 50% of /
Can I move /opt to a second hard disk (with dd or cp) and then add an entry in /etc/fstab so that it looks like
LABEL=/ / ext3 auto 11
LABEL=/opt /opt ext3 auto 11
and mtab looks like
/dev/hda6 / ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /opt ext3 rw 0 0
does this look right?
well mtab won't loko like anything, as you shouldn't edit it yourself. best way to move the /opt branch is probably...
find -xdev /opt | cpio -pvd /mnt
as this will take care of symlinks and such like.
But then /opt becomes /mnt/opt
What happens to all my paths (exports) do I have to change them to /mnt/opt
I wanted to move the filesystem so that it still has the /opt label
hehe, i missed the middle line... that was clever...
mount /dev/hda6 /mnt/opt
where hda6 is the new opt partition. once it's copied you can then delete the contents of /opt and mount the partition there.
