Environmental details: Self-hosted Replicated - Traditional/Native application server preparation 


In the past, when preparing an application server for Native Scheduler Replicated, we recommended that customers start with a 100GB - 200GB drive and partition the drive into Logical Volumes.


1. Start with a new 200 GB disk (unpartitioned)

2. Create mount points:

mkdir /data /logs /var/lib/docker /var/lib/replicated

3. Create Physical Volume:

pvcreate /dev/sdb 

(sdb is an example here; this would be the name of your new disk)

4. Create Volume Group:

vgcreate vg_jama /dev/sdb

5. Create Logical Volumes (example for 200 GB disk, increase if a larger disk is used, leaves 10GB for growth):

lvcreate -L 40G -n lv_docker vg_jama

lvcreate -L 30G -n lv_replicated vg_jama

lvcreate -L 20G -n lv_logs vg_jama

lvcreate -L 100G -n lv_data vg_jama

6. Write File systems:

mkfs.xfs -L docker -n ftype=1 /dev/vg_jama/lv_docker

mkfs.ext4 -L replicated /dev/vg_jama/lv_replicated

mkfs.ext4 -L data /dev/vg_jama/lv_data

mkfs.ext4 -L logs /dev/vg_jama/lv_logs

7. Edit /etc/fstab:

LABEL=docker                /var/lib/docker          xfs          defaults        0 0

LABEL=replicated         /var/lib/replicated     ext4       defaults        0 0

LABEL=data                  /data                              ext4       defaults        0 0

LABEL=logs                  /logs                                ext4       defaults        0 0

8. Mount all volumes:

mount -a
