Configuring Additional EBS Storage for a DSC Instance

If the default size of any launched DSC AMI is insufficient, you can add more EBS storage volumes to a running DSC instance.

This procedure describes how to configure the EBS block devices after adding the EBS storage volumes. This procedure is not for Amazon S3 storage.

  1. After adding more EBS storage volumes to a running DSC instance, configure the EBS block devices for use with the running DSA instance.
    # cd /opt/teradata/client/15.11/dsa/commandline
    # dsu-part-create -d  device  -s  size  -m  path
    where:
    • device is the device to partition.
    • size is the partition size, such as 1076 for 1076 GB.
    • path is the directory in which to mount the device and where files are saved by the DSC application.
    For example, add a 2 TB storage drive:
    # dsu-part-create -d  /dev/xvdd  -s  2147.5  -m  /dsu/path1
    where:
    • /dev/xvdd is the block device to partition.
      Note
      When launching the instance, the block device is /dev/xvdd, even though the block device is /dev/sdd.
    • 2147.5 is the partition size.
    • /dsu/path1 is the directory path in which to mount the device. If the directory does not exist, it is automatically created for you.
