two years ago I've installed OMV 2.0 on an old pc and I remember that OMV grabbed the whole system drive for root partition.
I agree that separation of system and data is a good thing so I arranged with it.
Now I want to install OMV 4.0 as storage and virtualization server. I'm familiar with VirtualBox. So the combination OMV + VBox-Plugin seems to fit for me.
But here is my problem:
The server pc has 4 x 4TB HDDs as data storage and a 256GB SSD for system.
I'd like to use the system SSD for the VBox VMs but I remember from OMV 2.0 that this usage is not intended. But in my case it makes absolutely sense to have the (relative small) VMs on the fast SSD.
What is the recommended way to archive this setup in OMV 4.0?
Does the installer have a partitioning tool now?
But to be honest I'd like to have the VMs within the root partition. Don't want to get stuck in a too small root-partition some time.
On my old OMV 2.0 SbNZBd Plugin had its temp dir for downloading and unpacking on the root partition too. This also makes sense to me on the new system as file access is much faster on the ssd than on the hdds.
But VMs and storage are the main purposes of the new system. So in the end I'll go the recommended way to have the VMs on my SSD.
Thanks for you suggestions!
