Make more space avaliable to /ibay folders;

NethServer Version: 7.9.2009
Module: System

Sooo, shared folders only have 50GB and /home has 871GB… i want this to be the oposite :laughing: any easy way to this?
Maybe here?



Easiest way would be to leave /home as it is.
Move /var/lib/nethserver/ibays to /home/ibays.
Create a symlink from
/home/ibays to /var/lib/nethserver/ibays

This allows you to use /home, and you do not risk anything, as no unmounting, etc is needed. Users should NOT be using the server exactly then - but this isn’t highly critical…

My 2 cents

Uhhh Forgot about symlinks… linux is awesome indeed :laughing:


When you start playing around or even reading about ZFS, and you read about stuff like zfs-send, zfs-recieve, zfs-sync, you really start to think…

It’s the file system, not a OS function or an app like rsync doing the transfering!

This makes Linux really awesome!

Btw, for those who might have the same “problem” command i used to move ibay folder to home is (if ibay folder does not exist in /home)

mv /var/lib/nethserver/ibay/ /home/ibay/

and then to create the symlink

ln -s /home/ibay/ /var/lib/nethserver/ibay/

works like magic :stuck_out_tongue: Thanks again @Andy_Wismer

Even Windows is “fooled” and now shows 870gbs :smiley:
