Partitioning for KVM Slave

  • / 80GB+ (KVM templates & iso's will be stored in /home/solusvm/kvm)

  • SWAP 4GB+ (Virtual servers may use host swap if there is a real memory shortage)
    8.14.4. Manual Partitioning

  • Logical Volume Group (LVM) remaining space (Logical Volume Group Only, SolusVM will create the logical volumes for the virtual servers inside this group)

Warning: The Volume Group Name CANNOT be KVM as /dev/kvm/ is a directory created on install.
The physical extent size should be set to 32M not the Default of 4M. Below is the example of configuration.

lsblk
pvcreate /dev/sdb
vgcreate -s 32M solusvm /dev/sdb
vgs

Note: In the example above, /dev/sdb should be replaced with actual device
