Or do I need to delete the
symlink first and only then try to mount the new drive as /home?
- delete the symlink
- create a directory /home
Do I create it on the existing drive and
- mount the new drive
then mount the new drive? I just want to make sure I unders
- copy the files
You cannot mount a disk on a symlink and you cannot mount a disk until
you have created the mount point.
And what about samba? I just realized I will need to alter sama
configuration becasue current /usr/home is available as a network share.
Thank you once again!
1. Mount new disk to temporary location.
2. Copy files over to disk.
3. Update /etc/fstab while files are being copied.
4. Drop into single user mode (if production machine), and login as root
(just to avoid possible errors in programs :)..).
5. Delete files in /usr/home
6. Mount new drive at /usr/home.
I know it's a long set of steps, but it's complete list.
If /usr/home is a symlink you could just symlink to the permanent
mountpoint after 3., and forgo doing 4. - 6.
