Menu path: Setup > System > Firmware Configuration > Custom Partition > Partition

Here, you can create a partition of your own.

  • Enable partition

    ☑ The customer partition is enabled in the IGEL Setup of the thin client or with the IGEL Universal Management Suite via the setup path.

    ☐ The customer partition is not enabled. (default)

  • Size: Size of the partition. A number must be followed by a multiplicative ending, without a space in between. Example: "100K" stands for 100 Kibibytes, that is, 100 * 1024 bytes.
    The following multiplicative endings are possible (capital letters required):
    K for kibibytes (number * 1024)
    M for mebibytes (number * 1024 * 1024)
    G for gibibytes (number * 1024 * 1024 * 1024)

    Sensible values are for example "100K" (for 100 KiB = 100 * 1024 bytes) or "100M" (for 100 MiB = 100 * 1024 * 1024 bytes). The size of the partition should be set to at least 100 KiB. However, no more than 300 MiB should be reserved for the customer-specific partition (based on the 1 GB standard CF used in IGEL Linux thin clients). This is because subsequent firmware updates may require more storage space than the current version.
  • Mount point: Path on which the partition is to be mounted. (default: /custom)
  • Partitions parameters: From IGEL OS Version 10.03.100, you can enter name value pairs which are passed on to the custom partition for further processing.
