Planing the setup of an UCS instance, it is important to know what amount of storage space is required and which partitions are recommended.
Recommended storage space
- The storage space depends on your scenario. The minimum requirements for the installation are 1 GB memory and 8 GB hard drive space. This is not always enough for productive use. (Reference: english / german)
- For UCS different scenarios have already been described. There is no general recommendation. (Reference: english / german)
- For UCS@School different scenarios have already been described, which also dependents on the number of students. (Reference: german)
Recommended partitioning scheme
General use case
- In general the Debian recommendation applies. Please have at least
/var/logseparated. (Reference: english / german)
|/var/spool/dovecot/||Using UCS as a Mailserver (Reference: english / german)|
|/var/univention-backup/||Regular local backups. To remove outdated backups after a year automatically:
|/var/lib/univention-ldap/||Having the LDAP directory database on separate storage i.e. SSD (Reference: english / german)|
|/var/lib/univention-repository/||Create your own UCS Repository Mirror (Reference: english / german)|
|/var/lib/univention-appcenter||App Center integrations may store user-data in this directory|
