I'm curious if there is a process for moving the email data store to a secondary disk or array on a ClearOS VM Install. Our company has had it's email requirements grow and I'd like to pull the email store off the main ClearOS disk for increased performance and reliability, but before I start symlinking everything, wanted to see if there was a better, more 'official' way to do that. Thank you!

From the command line:
yum install app-storage

You don't actually need the storage manager. You can move the data over and create the bind points manually in /etc/fstab yourself. There is probably enough information in the two links I gave.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one with terrible navigation problems. I don't see Storage Manager in either the free nor the paid marketplace. I've searched, and am coming up blank. I'm guessing it's still in beta even though the documentation says it's available in the Marketplace? Is Yum my only option then?

    I am really struggling finding documentation on this new site :(

    On the old site there is the Storage manager Guide and some background information on Bindmounts (but you don't need to use the LVM).

    Have a look at the Storage Manager app. Rather than symlinking it uses mounts with the bind option. The two folders to move are /var/lib/imap and /var/spool/imap.
