    Hi,
    Is there a tutorial how to add a second ssd into my dell poweredge t330 server as a virtual drive.
    so drive 1 has centos 7, ispconfig 3 and i want to add a second ssd drive that will also have centos 7 but will run openerp. so its a completely separate ssd disk but i need to run at the same time ispconfig runs, which i understand can only be done as s virtual machine, but i dont know how to do that.
    any tutorials would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
    Ben

    You don't want a dual-boot setup, that would let you use one or the other, but not both at the same time. If your ispconfig install is already virtualized, use the same virtualization technology to run centos off the ssd. If not, look into available options and pick one (eg. kvm), and you can run a virtual machine with the ssd as it's root device.
