hi all
I have a server with 3 hard drives ( 3*250 G)
follow the picture below
hard.png

But I have a problem
Users that are created , just use inside the paths of /home2 and /home3
How to use the whole space?
Does it automatically use the entire partitions when creating the user?
Is there a regulation?
Because every user I am making is only built on the following paths!
/home2
/home3
I want to use the 3 partitions to create an account automatically and Randomly.

thanks for helping me

CPanel creates the account on whichever home mount has the most free space which is logically sound.

If you wanted all that space as one volume then you could have created a software raid volume but now that there is data in them it's too late for that.

Hello @arshaanc,

The information in the previous post is correct. This is configurable with the following options in WHM >> Basic WebHost Manager® Setup:

Enter the location where you wish for new users’ home directories to be created. By default all directories matching the "Home Directory Prefix" are checked for available disk space and the directory with the most free space will be used.

Additional home directories matching the following value will also be used for new home directory creations. (Leaving this value blank disables the feature.) Only mount points are considered. This option only takes one value.


Let us know if you have any questions about how this works.

Thank you.
