swap on second HDD


Hi guys,

Just a quick question...

I already have an existing linux (centos 5.5) running.

I would like to add a second HDD and the partion is /data. Now, my question is it necessary to configure swap on the second drive or no need to configure swap since I already have swap on first HDD.

FYI: the second HDD has 1TB.

No need for extra swap.

Kind regards

No there is no need for extra swap..Your new HDD is only a file in your current OS.
