Re: Issues with using an EBS volume

If this is the case, then there is no quick solution to the disk space issue that you helped identify this last week.
I cannot install version 0.94 since easy install does not work well in its current form. See the following link for a full report:
Alternatively, the solution you suggested of exporting the volumes from the master to share these with the nodes would help, yet it involves many instructions made manually after the cluster is up and running. So as it is, it is too cumbersome to implement and for sure hard to document so someone inexperienced can follow easily.
The quickest least painful solution that may be open for me now would be to try the plugin pointed to by scrappythekangaroo about 3 months ago in:
So unless you can fix the 0.94 installation quick, I will have to try the plugin solution in hope it fully resolves the issue.
I hope I can reach an easy and quick solution for increasing the available disk space.
