    Wondering if there is anything special I need to know for this. I have a server running with cpanel and will add a second drive. Then mount the second drive to /home2

    I assume if I add the hard drive turn the server on WHM will see it for mounting? Is it that easy?

    Thanks,

    Other than mounting the drive as you would in Linux or FreeBSD (whichever you're using), there's nothing special that needs to be done in WHM. Actually, WHM will automatically detect the /home2 partition as a place to store new accounts. WHM will provision accounts to /home or /home2, whichever drive has the most available disk space.
