[Samba] Configure File System for Shadow Copy

Dear Chris, 
I appreciate the initial contact. 
See if I understand your explanation. 

I will create an SDB drive with 1 TB. 
When I create LVM, I create two partitions, one with 900GB and 100GB with another. This 100GB partition I'll use to store the snapshots? 

Or I create an SDB with 1TB, and when you create the LVM with lvcreate, I put only 900GB? 

Soon after setting the shadow copy, I will set quota for AD group. 
Thank you!

> if I understand what you're asking, it's a good idea to keep your data partitions separate from your boot and application partitions.  this applies to any server on pretty much any OS, and also applies to /home.

> so make a VG for sdb, and in case that guide isn't clear, don't make your logical volume take 100% of the VG or you won't have room for the shadows, which are actually LVM snapshots.
