Additional drives on OVH

Date: February 9th, 2017 OVHPublic CloudAdditional DrivesCloud HostingServer Storage

Partition and mount additional drive to an OVH public cloud vm server bash script.



We will be using an Ubuntu 16.04 OS Image and will have already installed "wget" with the following command:

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install wget

The third character of the drive name will alpha increment. For example, the first additional drive will be called "vdb", the second "vdc", the third "vdd" and so on.


Step 1:

  • Create an additional drive from the ovh control panel
  • Attach the drive to a public cloud server
  • Connect via SSH into the server

Step 2:

  • Download the bash script from this repository to the public cloud server
  • Make the bash script executable
    cd /
    sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/entonbiba/ovh-public-cloud-additional-drive-bash-script/master/ovh_adpc.sh
    chmod +x ovh_adpc.sh

Step 3:

  • Run the script
    sudo bash ovh_adpc.sh 



You should now be able to use the additional drive from the mounted directory "/mnt/disk"
