I ran across an issue during the install of VSMS 6.3.1 on RedHat that needs to be addresses in the install documentation. The install doc does not make a reference to requiring a partition for the archive storage. If you install using the default partitioning method of RedHat, it will only create a boot and system partition, neither can be used by VSMS for archival purposes.
Thank you for that feedback. I will make inquiries to PSBU and the doc team to see if this was intentional (leaving partitioning discussions in a separate document) or an oversight. In either case, a reference to additional documents would be helpful so that future installs do not suffer from a similar lack of instructions.
For now, the docs for partitioning for RHEL may be found here beginning on page 5 in the section Creating Partitions:
Thanks again for pointing this out,
Thanks to your feedback, I filed a defect against the VSM 6.3.1 Install & Upgrade Guide to include partition requirements for video storage.

Thanks also to John for posting those files so that others may have access.
All the best,
