Public bug reported: As reported in Joyent bug IMAGE-1103, ext3 doesn't work with large ephemeral drives.
2018-03-30 23:36:26,529 - util.py[WARNING]: Failed during filesystem operation Failed to exec of '['/sbin/mkfs.ext3', '/dev/vdb', '-L', 'ephemeral0', '-F']': Unexpected error while running command. Command: ['/sbin/mkfs.ext3', '/dev/vdb', '-L', 'ephemeral0', '-F'] Exit code: 1 Reason: - Stdout: Stderr: mke2fs 1.42.13 (17-May-2015) mkfs.ext3: Size of device (0x100000000 blocks) /dev/vdb too big to be expressed in 32 bits using a blocksize of 4096. The default should switch to ext4. It so happens that this matches the default in DataSourceAzure.py. ** Affects: cloud-init (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Assignee: Mike Gerdts (mgerdts) Status: New ** Changed in: cloud-init (Ubuntu) Assignee: (unassigned) => Mike Gerdts (mgerdts) -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1763511 Title: DataSourceSmartOS should default to ext4 To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cloud-init/+bug/1763511/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
