In this video, Kevin Dankwardt challenges you to make three disk partitions, of size 10, 20, and 50MB. Then he challenges you to format these partitions with ext4, XFS, and Btrfs. After formatting the disks you are to mount them.
- [Instructor] Now let's see what you can do with partitioning and file systems, and NFS and autofs. So this is all dangerous stuff. You can wipe out your system if things go wrong. So, as always, do a backup and have an extra disk for your work here. Even just a thumb drive that you could just wipe out without causing any problems. But sometimes, right, like for the NFS you're going to have to change system config files.
So save the ones you have now and put 'em back when you're done. Keep track of what you're doing or make a new virtual machine and work with that so if things go wrong you're not messing up anything you need to keep. All right, so assuming that you're ready to go and even if things go wrong it won't be a big problem for ya, let's try some stuff. Right, so on your disk there remove all the partitions so there's no partitions at all and then make three partitions.
And we'll make 'em real small so they'll fit on anybody's disk. Just a 10 meg, a 20 meg and a 50 meg partitions. Then format the first one as ext4, the second one as XFS and the third one is Btrfs. When you do the Btrfs do it with compression. All right, then we're going to do NFS and autofs, so set your system up as an NFS server and have it export a directory /export-dir and in /export-dr make a subdirectory called MyUser and in the directory MyUser create a file called MyUser.file.
Then set up your system as a client to do autofs to mount that /export-dir/MyUser onto /home/MyUser. Right, good luck.
