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

Note:

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

There are two types of additional disks that can be mounted on OVH Public Cloud servers.

  • Classic disk (starts with the letter s)
  • High Performance disk (starts with the letter v)

The third character of the drive name will alpha increment.
For example if it's a high performance disk, 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<br/>

Classic Disk

cd /
sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/entonbiba/ovh-public-cloud-additional-drive-bash-script/master/ovh_adpc_classic_disk.sh
chmod +x ovh_adpc_classic_disk.sh

High Performance Disk

cd /
sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/entonbiba/ovh-public-cloud-additional-drive-bash-script/master/ovh_adpc_highperformance_disk.sh
chmod +x ovh_adpc_highperformance_disk.sh

Step 3:

  • Run the script<br/>

Classic Disk

sudo bash ovh_adpc_classic_disk.sh

High Performance Disk

sudo bash ovh_adpc_highperformance_disk.sh

Finished

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