SSD and HDD mounts; looking for a way to easily assign them to accounts or resellers

    Situation:
    Server with both SSD and HDD mounts for /homeX

    Want:
    easy way to assign accounts or resellers to a certain mount

    Reason:
    We want to sell cheaper HDD-based accounts, as well as more expensive SDD-based accounts

    Current situation:
    WHM assigns accounts to the mount with the most free space, which isn't always the mount we want.

    Workaround:
    temporary change the settings in "Basic cPanel & WHM setup", create acount, return settings to previous mount.
    Or create account, and then from "List accounts" move the account to another mount.

    Problem:
    This is a lot of steps to take, for something we need to do almost every time we create a new account.
    For resellers, there doesn't even seem to be a way to assign all accounts created to a certain mount; it always follows the settings in the "Basic cPanel & WHM setup"

    Question:
    is there an easier way to fulfill our needs?

    Hello :)

    There are no native features in WHM that allow you to specify the mount without modifying the configuration you referenced. You can open a feature request for the ability to choose a specific mount at the time of account creation:

    Thank you.
