Minimum Partition Size Required in Redhat Linux Server for DNS Server Configuration


Dear Friend,

Right now i have a HP DL 180 Server with 130 Gb Hard Disk & 8 Gb ram after Raiding0+1. i want to configure Domain Controller Server for my office for 200 to 300 Users. what should the partition size must be mentioned in my 130 Gb Hard Disk, is that going to be Sufficient for ME ?

i am bit confused about /Usr /Var /Boot partitions, as i need to manage perfectly in 130 GB

if i go with 4 Gb swap and remaining for " / " is that will be fine ? should i need to specify partition sizes separately for / tmp /var / usr ..

Please guide me on this.

I'd probably go with something like:

Partition1: 500MB type 83(Linux)
Partition2: 1GB type 82(linux swap)
Partition3: <remaining space> type 8e(LVM)

Then allocate as follows:
/boot 500MB (partition1)
swap 1GB (partition2)
# create volume group vg1 on partiton3
/var 4GB (Logical volume in vg1)
/usr 4GB (Logical volume in vg1)
/home 500MB (Logical volume in vg1)
/ 10GB (Logical volume in vg1)

110GB left spare in vg1

If you run out of space anywhere you can perform an online resize with no outage

cheers

Personally, given you've (effectively) only got 1 disk and only 8GB RAM

1. part 1; /boot 512MB
2, part 2; swap 8GB (maybe 4GB; many args about how much, but disk is cheap; I like 1 x RAM myself)
3. part 3; everything else.

If its literally just a domain controller, there's no need to limit different areas and then potentially have to add to them.
You should have a diskspace monitor process of some sort anyway; just a simple cron job once an hr / once a day would prob do.
Disk usage should be fairly static; just check your logs are rotating.

.. I always find someone says "hey look .. this servers not doing much, lets put X on here!"

( X as a placeholder .. not X as in windows )
