Re: Change filesystem type in V2 manifest schema

Hi,

 

a change in filesystem format requires formatting the disk. Currently, the only way to trigger creating a new persistent disk and copying over the data is when changing the disk's size. Hope that helps.

 

Warm regards

Subject: [cf-bosh] Change filesystem type in V2 manifest schema

 

Hi,

 

Here in the bosh docs https://bosh.io/docs/persistent-disk-fs.html, it is mentioned that if we want to change the filesystem type, we have to change the persistent disk size.

Why is the disk size change mandatory for the filesystem change?

 

We have a use case where we want to migrate the deployment from ext4 filesystem to xfs filesystem. But as per the docs, this happens only when the disk size is also changed.

Appreciate the help.
