Hello,

Could you let us know what specific issue you are facing when attempting to rearrange an account? Do you see the additional drive mounted as "/home2" when running the "mount" command on your system?

Thank you.

Hello,

The partition is mounted correctly. Look:
//nas.server.com/h123 on / home3 type cifs (rw)

When I try to perform a rearrange, the partition does not appear in WHM.

Thank You.

Hello,

While network-based filesystems are often configured for backup purposes, we actually don't support it for home directories. This is mentioned under the Filesystem Requirements section in our installation documentation:

We only develop and test cPanel & WHM on filesystems that support flock. Some network filesystems (for example, NFS) may require additional configuration in order to function properly. However, these configurations are difficult to implement successfully and we do not support them.
Thank you.
