Sentinel 8.2 file system partitioning
I installed sentinel 8.2 appliance, but we cannot change partitions. When install process was terminated, we have a root partition that occupied all disk and a swap file.
Now we have to change partitition in posta installation phase: use a resque disk, shrink /root partition, increase swap file, create /home, /var/opt/novell/sentinel and /archive and so on.
How can we change partitions size during installation steps?
Do we have to use RedHat or Suse operating system and not to use Sentinel appliance?
Also found this change in appliance installation behaviour annoying.
I'd written the article Understanding Sentinel disk usage a while ago based on being able to manage the partitioning, but now its a bit redundant with regards to the appliance.
I ended up giving up on the appliance installation and going for service installation so I could control partitioning...

Hacker: "What about GCMG?"

I opened a SR to support.
This is a defect on 8.2 ISO appliance istallation. The only workaround is to do a traditional install.
Tey are planning to fix this issue in 8.3.
