fdisk is not creating partition and server just hangs
Posted on: Aug 29, 2018by:
Why Cloud Server just hangs while creating partition with fdisk? Upto asking the partition number is fine and then it just hangs. For ctr+c will work but partition is not getting created.
One of two things is happening if you are using our cloud servers:
1. You are trying to partition the primary drive where the OS is installed, which will fail/cause your system to hang.
2. You are trying to partition a non-existent disk. Our cloud servers can have an extra drive, but it is referred to with /dev/xvdf or /dev/xvdg (see the tab on the cloud servers when you add the drive in the same drop down you launched the server from).
