Setting up new partitions for OES 2 based on SLES 10 SP4.

I can not find a good instructions how to setup disk partitions for OES 2 based on SLES 10 SP4 for new installation. Please advise.

  • Advice: Start with OES 11 using the latest SP, as OES 2 is pretty old.

    Also, document what your server will be doing. Adding extra partitions to
    a server without a specific purpose is likely overkill. If a file server,
    you'll need NSS, but other than that you can likely, almost always, just
    have a couple of partitions and be completely safe (I'd have /boot and /
    and be done; most others would also have swap in there taking a couple GB
    of space).

    Good luck.
