NethServer Version: 7.4.1708 plus all updates
(By way of background, I have played with Nethserver in the past but always on a virtual machine and always just with a single root partition (plus /boot and swap of course)
Having just acquired some reasonable hardware to run a Nethserver on, I have set about setting up a machine. The ‘default’ partitioning seems to include a separate partition for /home which seemed very reasonable and normal until I realised that all user homes, shares etc are created under /var/lib/nethserver. As this is the case, the separate partition for /home seems irrelevant and a waste of disk since the bulk of disk usage will go on the /root partition (I’d allocated 1.4T for /home).
Is the above thinking correct? Or is something subtle happening that I haven’t picked up on?
Did I miss an obvious step in installation to create a partition at /var/lib/nethserver?
Am I missing something else?
