Summary0000704: Default install results in LVM reserving too much space for lv_home volume
DescriptionSee forum threads for details for reported issue,com_kunena/Itemid,232/catid,18/func,view/id,44685/ [^],com_kunena/Itemid,232/catid,39/func,view/id,43029/limit,10/limitstart,70/#44605 [^]

This is a problem because most of ClearOS file storage occurs at /var/flexshare not /home

(As an aside my VM test install created only the lv_root volume, so yet to determine at which point in the install it creates a seperate /home volume and mount point)

Work around is manual partition / mount point configuration during install

Only seems to affect systems with larger drives... not seen on VM install < 10GB. Forum user notes issue with 300GB drive.

I'll try and find out why this is happening. There is a workaround for this but it requires some command line work. I know that Peter and I have been working to make a method whereby the OS is largely located on '/' and all other data devices are located in '/store'. For example, if you have additional partitions, NAS devices, USB attached storage, iSCSI SAN or what have you, then you simply mount all of this data in /store. (data0, usb0, iscsi0, iscsi1, et al.)

From here you bind mount the data to the new drive. This is a workaround but I will have a guide tomorrow written up to resize your LVM on ClearOS. The beauty of LVM is that you can shrink and grow the partitions. Until then (and even if you do the LVM thing) you might want to consider making the data structure you need in the /home partition and then simply bindmounting it over to /var/flexshare/shares.
