I thought I had selected some option when I created by experiment " 2note-RTOS-tests" (was supposed to say '2node-....')  so that the local disk would be scratch space for me.

I tried to to  fdisk /dev/sdb and I do see  a drive, but also go strange errors when I tried to exit fdisk w/o any thing done w/ it.

Hi Gautam. It seems that you didn't specify the "Temporary Filesystem
Size" parameter, nor the "Temp Filesystem Max Space" checkbox parameter,
when you created... you can see this on "Bindings" tab on your
experiment's status page, below the blue Profile Instructions box.

`q` exits fdisk, and that worked fine for me on e.g. node0 in your
experiment.
