Hi Team, 


understand that using LVM are not recommended for cluster storage device, but good for boot drive. May i know when setting up the Linux disk partition, which option i should go to?


There are the following options:

  1. Standard partition
  2. btrfs
  3. LVM
  4. LVM Thin provisioning 


Based on MapR recommendation, I choice 3. LVM... will automatically create

/home   Device type "LVM", file system : xfs

/boot     Device type :Standard Partition",  file system fs

/            Device type : xfs , file system:xfs

/swap   Device type : LVM, file system:swap


Is the above a recommend partition setting for boot disk? And  is /boot disk's Device type : shoyld assign to "LVM", "LVM Thin Provisioning" or "Standard parition" ???
