Default Operating System Installation Location

Please note: This article only applies to bare-metal AgileSERVER v2 instances that employ hardware flavors with multiple volumes.

For instances created since November 15th, 2017, operating systems are installed on the first available volume (e.g.: /dev/sda, C:) by default.

Instances created before November 15th, 2017 will keep their original operating system installation location (their smallest volume) unless they are rebuilt as of December 7th, 2017.

While unlikely, if an instance was created before November 15th, 2017, and its smallest volume is not its first volume, and a rebuild is attempted as of December 7th, 2017, data within its first volume will be lost.

Check the size of an instance’s volumes before rebuilding it to properly anticipate impacts to data.
