Hi,

I have a weird problem with WHM, I'm not sure if this has happen before. I just add an extra HD to my servers, when I proceed to make a new account the new site is now put on the second HD partition. I checked the account making process and there is no option for me to specify it on the original partition. Have anyone have this problem? and is there a solution? Appreciate your help.

WHM will automatically detect any new partition starting with /home (or whatever you have set the Home Directory Prefix in WHM -> Server Configuration -> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup) as a location to place new accounts. cPanel/WHM will use the partition with the most free disk space rather than "filling" the old drive then moving to the new drive.
