Rebuild smaller devel pool on bs2020

Reported by: D Delmar Davis Owned by: D Delmar Davis
Priority: Major PITA Milestone: Server Modernization Phase II
Component: bs2020 (dell) Keywords: backups lxd
Cc: Joe Dumoulin


Due to lxd's inconsistency on using zfs pools for containers and other disk resources for images.
Current backup strategy requires more disk space than is currently on the root disk.

Basic outline.....

  • move running containers to kb2018
  • split devel mirror.
  • partition newly freed disk
  • build new zfs partition for /var/lib/lxd/images
  • run backup scripts to size partition for backups
  • wipe and partition disk.
  • rebuild zfs pool on first partition for /var/lib/lxd/images
  • offline old devel pool
  • build new devel pool on second partition.
  • move containers back to bs2020
  • continue work on backup scripts.
