Recommended Config for SLES 12 SP3 Install for Zenworks 2017

Anybody have a "tried and true" recommendation for setting up a SLES 12 SP3 server, in terms of partitions, for use with Zenworks 2017? I did a SLES 12 install to a new server using HP's "Intelligent Provisioning" and I don't like how it set things up - 40GB root with all these little subvolulmes and the largest oneis /home, which uses most of the drive space :eek: (not where I need it to be). I read that I needed to pay attention to having a decent size for the /var/opt directory. What are people using now?

Thanks in advance!

    During the installation of SLES12 you can choose not to split
    /home into it's own partition - click Edit Proposal
    Settings.

  • Thanks, Simon! I did not know that. I'll give it a shot. I saw that option, just wasn't clear that's what I could do with it.

    Kind regards,

  • Hi Simon,

    I take a chance to ask you a question :

    I would like to migrate my SLES 11.4 Zenworks 2017 Update2 (soon Update 3) to a Appliance Zenworks 2017. I could not find any where a step-by-step how to do it.

    Any suggestion ?
