One thing to note about using IPv6 addresses is that some tools require a different format when attempting to connect directly via the IP address. In general we recommend to use our helper DNS record or use a DNS record in place of the IPv6 address.
(No volume type) LVM
(Any availability zone)
Log into your instance via ssh.
Format the volume:
$ sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdc
Attached volumes will typically be assigned device names in sequential order (i.e. /dev/sdc, /dev/sdd, /dev/sde, etc.)
List all disks from within the instance with:
$ sudo fdisk -l
/dev/sda and /dev/sdb are the system volumes that make up the instance.
Create a mount point for the volume:
$ sudo mkdir /mnt/<mount_point_name>
Mount the volume device to the mount point:
$ sudo mount /dev/sdc /mnt/<mount_point_name>
Permissions may need to be changed on the new volume, as they are initially set to root:
$ sudo chown ubuntu:ubuntu /mnt/<mount_point_name>
Additional information on how to use other volume types is available in our Advanced Guide under Volume Types.
