Chapter 11. Storage Considerations During Installation
11.1. Updates to Storage Configuration During Installation
Anaconda can now configure FCoE storage devices during installation.
Anaconda now has improved control over which storage devices are used during installation. You can now control which devices are available/visible to the installer, in addition to which devices are actually used for system storage. There are two paths through device filtering:
- Basic Path
- For systems that only use locally attached disks and firmware RAID arrays as storage devices
- Advanced Path
- For systems that use SAN (e.g. multipath, iSCSI, FCoE) devices
Auto-partitioning now creates a separate logical volume for the
/home file system when 50GB or more is available for allocation of LVM physical volumes. The root file system (
/) will be limited to a maximum of 50GB when creating a separate
/home logical volume, but the
/home logical volume will grow to occupy all remaining space in the volume group.
