By default, two logical volumes are created on top of the partitions. CHAPTER 1 ■ INSTALLING UBUNTU SERVER Manually Setting Up Your Hard Drive If you want to set up your server’s hard drive manually, that’s perfectly fine, but you need to do some thinking before you start. First, you need to decide if you want to use LVM or traditional partitions only.
Before discussing how this works, take a look at this short and incomplete list of some important device files that can be used: • /dev/null: The null device is a special software routine that helps with testing. It throws away all data written to it (while reporting success) and immediately returns EOF when read from. Use this device to redirect to “nowhere”. • /dev/zero: This is your friendly zero generator. Use this device before selling your old hard drive online; cat /dev/zero > /dev/sda will erase all data on your hard drive and put zeroes there instead.
Completing the Installation Now that you have created the partitioning scheme for your server’s hard drive, it’s time to finalize the installation of your server. In this part of the installation, you enter some generic properties (like some user information), and you specify what software packages to install. 1. Next, the installer asks you to create a user account. This is the user account that you will normally be working with, instead of using the root user account by default. Enter the name of the user account and then enter (twice) the password for this user.
