Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a file server that was built before my time here. Unfortunately it was not built very well, and of course it became more and more important to production.
Using LVM the following was created:
/dev/mapper/vg_weather-sff_share 34T 30T 3.4T 90% /sff_share
This is currently made up of 30 + different volumes. I do not want to continue growth here. Our developers need to be able to write to the date in /sff_share. The data is to large to be moved or copied.
I was thinking about creating a new fresh mount /sff_share1 and building a sim link to /sff_share so that the data will still be able to be accessed, but new data will be written to he fresh file system / volume attached to /sff_share1. So to the script everything can be accessed under /sff_share.
Does this sound like a good route? Or might there be a better option.
1. I need to get write to stop on the current /sff_share
2. New data needs to write to /sff_share1
3. Both /sff_share and /sff_share1 need to be accessible under /sff_share
