Hi All,

We normally build our templates in SLES11 on LVM with separate partitions for some mountpoints e.g.


This allows us to dynamically grow or shrink disk space as needed on the different mountpoints.
The templates are on VMware and so we can extend disks on the fly and increase space without downtime.

With SLE12 I would like to do the same thing but also be able to utilise the BTRFS snapshot functionality

How do I make this a realty?

Do I create an LVM based solution as in the past and then just create BTRFS filesystems for each mountpoint as we did in the past?
or do we create subvolumes?

I would appreciate some advice
