Additional Disks

When building or editing a system design, you have the option to add up to 4 additional disks up to 1 TB each. At run time, the disks specified in each system design are automatically formatted and mounted to each of your run hosts.

On most Linux hosts, mount points are:

  • /cons3rt_disk1
  • /cons3rt_disk2
  • /cons3rt_disk3
  • /cons3rt_disk4

On Red Hat Atomic, the mount points are:

  • /home/cons3rt_disk1
  • /home/cons3rt_disk2
  • /home/cons3rt_disk3
  • /home/cons3rt_disk4

Windows disk mount points:

  • On most Windows hosts, disks are mounted at the following drive letters: T, U, V, and W
  • Windows 2012 in AWS uses: D, E, F, and G
