Increasing Storage

Post by dmellors » Sun Mar 17, 2019 9:30 am

Hi all,

I have recently installed EVE-NG Pro on a bare metal server. Currently its installed on my primary 256GB NVME SSD drive. I also have a 1TB NVME SSD drive installed in my system which I would like to use as the main storage for my labs. Could anyone please advise how best to set this up?

Hi,

if I understand correctly you simply want to move EVE-NG from 256 GB SSD to 1 TB SSD, right? Because it's on bare metal server I'd recommend clone the drive / disk and move it to the 1 TB SSD. A program that can do it is called Acronis True Image. Otherwise if using VMware it's easy to move between devices / drives.

Feel free to to correct me if I am mistaken.

Hi Folks,

Probably its possible to clone, but the method recommended (creating a new disk/partition) its really simple.

best regards,

Hi, thanks for the replies.

To clarify what i am trying to do, I currently have eve-ng installed on a a bare metal server on a 256GB NVME drive. In my system I also have a separate 1TB NVME drive.

I'd like to simply add the 1TB NVME drive to be used as my main storage for saving labs to whilst leaving eve-ng to installed/running on the 256GB NVME drive.

Is this possible?

Regards

Dan
