Add an external SSD

In case you have installed Dappnode in a Raspberry using a SD card and you want to add an external SSD you should mount docker data in it. To do this, follow the next steps:

  • Stop Docker service systemctl stop docker

  • Create a new mountpoint for docker data. As an example: mkdir /data

  • Add your partition on the new device to /etc/fstab. You can identify its UUID using the blkid tool. Make sure your device is properly partitioned first. Your line in /etc/fstab should look like this: UUID=b311b983-bda6-4e9f-835c-266d40d64f07 /data/ ext4 defaults 0 0

  • Mount your SSD drive mount /data

  • Move docker data to the mountpoint mv /var/lib/docker/* /data/

  • Edit Docker settings to use the alternative location. Edit /etc/docker/daemon.json as follows:

"data-root": "/data"
  • Restart docker

systemctl start docker
