White Paper - Restoring a large enterprise MDM environment in VMware from MDS backup

Author:

@Tom_Hartig 

Objective:

Replicate a large enterprise MDM environment in VMware without wasting disk space for
snapshots and backup partitions.

Challenge:

When you create a virtual machine to replicate a large MDM environment the Gaia installer
will reserve a large amount of space for the snapshot and backups partition which is not
necessary when replicating a customer environment.

Solution:

This document will show you how to create a virtual machine with a small initial virtual disk and
later add a second larger virtual disk that will be used for replicating the customer MDM
environment. This greatly reduces the wasted space of the large backup and snapshot partition.

Re: White Paper - Restoring a large enterprise MDM environment in VMware from MDS backup

There are 2 things I want to comment on:

1. if it is R80.20, why is it ext3 and not XFS?

2. why not enhance LVM volume group and logical volume by a second disk and grow the partions manually (pvcreate, vgextend, lvextend, xfs_growfs)?

 

Btw. maybe inform TAC about this, because we often had issues with TAC replicating MDM environments because they failed to have appropriate partition sizes 😉
