How to use Perforce with Mounted volume (block storage)

Can someone explain to me how can i make the mounted volume appear on p4v. I am only seeing the base server storage even though the drive has been mounted.

The volume is showing up when i run the df -h command.

In case anyone comes here looking for answers like I did, here’s what I found out:

If you have already setup perforce on a server and want to increase the size so perforce quits complaining about running out of space. You CAN’T just add more volumes to increase the size. You have to increase the server storage instead. This is because Perforce only cares about your Root volume not other empty ones. Maybe you can remap root to another volume somehow but I’m no engineer and didn’t understand half of what I read on this issue.

To increase your storage capacity go into your droplet in Digital Ocean an selecting the resize option. There you have two options “CPU an RAM only” and “Disk, CPU and RAM”. Yup you’ll want the later. There you can pick a plan to increase the root volume.

NOTE: You’ll probably want to do a snap shot of your droplet before increasing size, you’ll also want to shut the droplet down when doing all of this.

Hi, did anyone find a solution? I am too having the same issue.

thanks, Tom.

Same issue here. I can’t keep resizing, it’s too expensive but now that I have “The filesystem ‘P4ROOT’ has only 2G free…” I need a cheaper solution.
