       dtc_setup_disk - setup LVM disks for using it as a VM


DESCRIPTION  This  shell  script  is  a  part  of the dtc-xen
       package that is to be used by the dtc panel to manage a Xen VPS server.

       This  script is used to create partitions to be used by a VPS later on.
       It will create a normal partition that will be used as a root disk, and
       a swap partition.

       dtc_setup_disk  is  to be used by the dtc-xen SOAP server, but can also
       be used as a standalone userland tool.

       If the partition(s) exists, then this script will delete it/them first.


       VPS_NUMBER  has  to be a number between 01 and 19. Let’s say the number
       is 16, and that dtc-xen is configured to use the  volume  group  called
       lvm1,    then    this    script   will   create   /dev/lvm1/xen16   and

       HDD_SIZE Size in MB of the VPS partition to create.

       SWAP_SIZE Size in MB of the VPS swap partition to create. If  the  dtc-
       xen  SOAP  server is used to create the VPS, then it will create a swap
       partition of the exact same size as the memory.

       IMAGE_TYPE This parameter can have 2 values: either lvm or loopback. If
       ommited, then lvm is used. If lvm is used, then this script will create
       a partition using lvmcreate, otherwise it will create  an  image  file.
       Both will later be used for the VPS.


       dtc_setup_vps_disk 04 15360 256 lvm

       This will create 2 LVM partition to be used by the VPS named xen04, the
       first one being a root partition of 15 GB, and the second one  being  a
       swap partition of 256 MB.


       This  documentation  describes  dtc_setup_vps_disk version 0.3.15.  See for updates.
