Earlier we added additional EBS volumes to each cluster node. The nodes also have an ephemeral drive attached to them. The volumes can be initialized either MBR or GPT.
Initialize the Disk
Format the Volumes
Once they are initialized, format each volume NTFS and assign them drive letters.
The ephemeral drive will be used to hold the DataKeeper bitmap file. It is important to ensure that the ephemeral drive is mounted each time the server starts up. Configure EC2Launch to ensure this process is automated.
