Linux Storage Management: Project 1


In requirements it is write to submit in pdf but i want a .doc file so if there are changes i can change and the screenshots should be crop so that we can see only the main part the command and the complete result of the command. This is written in the file please review.

Note: When completing this and all other assignments in this class, you must start your own new document as your submission, not use this assignment and paste screenshots in-between the text contained herein. Your submissions must always be your original work. You are not allowed to copy and paste large chunks of text from this or any other document into your own - anything you use in all academic writings must be properly quoted and cited. In this case, there is no reason to quote anything: your submission’s requirements are clearly stated.

This project will solidify the knowledge you have gained in Weeks 2-5 of the course. Be sure to carry out all necessary commands in the Terminal, not in GUI.

One Linux virtual machine - Several new hard drives added via VMware - Document the following process with great detail in a PDF file. - Describe every step (each bullet and sub bullet) and insert clear screenshots showing your command and the terminal’s output. -

In your submission, include LARGE and CLEARLY readable screenshots when required. Crop the screenshots in order to make the font large and easy to read (DC Connect shrinks your submissions during marking, so please keep this in mind). There is no need to include any empty space in your images or any inapplicable outputs. - Screenshots with small and unreadable screenshots will incur deductions - Screenshots in an incorrect order will incur deductions Imagine you are deploying a new server or a business client machine.

1. Plan the hard disk layout. Assume there is only one physical hard drive on the new server or client workstation at your company. Use the knowledge you have gained from the chapters (19) to propose the most appropriate solution. Use convincing arguments based on the best industry practice to justify your decision; imagine you have to convince your supervisor that your chosen hard disk scheme for the machine is the best.

a. Assume that the Linux distribution you are using for this assignment (ie. the one that is already installed) is located on the primary hard drive (sda) - do not make any partition changes to that drive. Add another hard drive to your system and execute your design scheme from point 1 above on that device. Show all the steps required to get the new drive to a fully operational state, short of actually installing a new OS or system files on it. Show creation and mounting of at least two partitions.

Task 1: Plan the hard disk layout

b. Be sure to have a swap partition on the new drive.

c. Make sure your new partitions get mounted at boot - use device UUIDs (because you will not be installing an actual OS on the new drive, come up with random descriptive mount-point names to mount your newly created partitions, for example: /BOOTpartition, /SWAPpartiton, etc).

d. Create some files and folders on the newly created partitions, except swap.

a. Add two extra drives to your system, one 2GB and the other 3GB in size.

b. Merge both drives into one logical volume using LVM and create a file system of type ext3 that uses 4GB of the available space (ie. 1GB will be left unused).

c. Mount the new drive to /LVMdrive.

d. Show the new volume’s properties (volume group info, free physical extents/bytes, logical volume info, free disk space, mount-points, device location in the Linux file structure, etc.).

e. Create one file and one folder on the new logical volume.

f. Expand the file system on the volume to the full extent of the physical drives, ie. 5GB. g. Show available space (df) in human readable format after this operation.

a. Add a new 500MB drive to your system.

b. Create one large partition of any file system type, as long as it supports disk quotas.

c. Create a new user account called “tester” (use the ‘adduser’ command which creates a fully functional account for a user, including home folder and a password).

d. Tester’s home folder should be the new drive, so make appropriate changes to your system to reflect that (be sure it gets mounted automatically at boot).

e. Set up a disk quota for tester which does not allow him to exceed 150MB on the new drive. Tester’s soft limit should be set at 100MB.

f. Be sure to verify whether the quota system is turned on from the admin account.

g. Log in as tester (use another terminal) and using a dd or fallocate commands, create some large files and show the warning that tester will get when he exceeds the quota limit. At this point tester will request more space from IT.

h. Show quota report from the admin account. i. Increase tester’s quota to 200MB and show quota report again.

j. Log in as tester (use another terminal) and show how tester can check his quota status. Make sure your submission is properly organized and the quality of the screenshots is high (in accordance with notes above under Requirements). Submit the PDF file to DC Connect by the deadline.
