General :: After Upgrading To Ubuntu 9.10 External USB Drive Won't Auto Mount?

Nov 13, 2009

I upgraded Ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 desktop a few weeks ago and an external USB drive that was mounting at startup on 9.04 is no longer mounting on 9.10. If I unplug the USB cable and plug it back in it comes up. The issue is strange in that when a regular non-admin logs in the drive auto mounts but does not for an admin login. I have not been able to put together search results that would lead me to a hint of why this would occur and/or what aresolution may be.Why would the drive auto mount when a regular user logs in but not auto mount for an admin? When I say admin I guess what I mean is a user with more privileges such as member of the admin group.

Ubuntu :: Auto-mount External Drive To Folder

Sep 26, 2010

The solution may to my problem may exist elsewhere, but I had trouble searching/finding it.I just bought a new external drive. The drive is formatted as ext4. I use it mainly in esata mode. Whenever I connect it, it mounts to /media/[UUID], where "[UUID]" is the UUID of the drive. I want it to be located at /media/backup when it is inserted, not in relation the UUID. I have tried putting a new line in my fstab (mount by UUID to folder) to mount the drive. It mounts correctly if the drive is connected to the computer and turned on during startup, but if the drive is off/not connected during startup Ubuntu barks at me. (I press 's' to skip mounting the drive) Is there a way to make external/removable drives mount to a certain location other than /media/[UUID] when they are inserted? I want the drive to mount to the folder while the computer is running, not only during startup.

General :: Mount External USB Drive In Debian To A Mount Point Based On The Volume Name

May 5, 2011

How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.

This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).

Ubuntu Installation :: Auto Mount After Upgrading To 10.4

Jun 12, 2010

I upgraded to 10.4 and installed Grub on a wrong drive. This means that I have it on the right drive (the one with Ubuntu) and in the wrong one (the one use for data). I have no problems with booting to Ubuntu or Windows. I can even access the files from the data drive (called Storage) after the systems boots. The thing is that I can't auto mount it anymore (with /etc/fstab) and I don't know how to remove grub from the drive, because I can't find where the boot files are. When booting Ubuntu, a message appears saying that there has been an error when trying to mount the drive, I press 'S', to skip the mounting and it goes to the desktop with no problems after that. I only want to be able to auto mount it, even if I can't remove it.

This is the info from Boot Info Script:
Code:
Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010
=> Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks on the same drive in partition #1 for /boot/grub.

OpenSUSE :: After Upgrading To 11.4 No Drives Will Auto-mount

Mar 13, 2011

I was using 11.3, everything worked fine Upgraded to 11.4, now no drives will automount. As a result applications like Nero and K3B cannot find my DVD drive. I can access the drives from an application like VLC where I can enter the device path /dev/dvd

Dmesg and tail -f /var/log/messages output the following error:
118.604577] udisks-daemon[6574]: segfault at 18 ip 00007f5597c6b990 sp 00007fffd2e65470 error 4 in libdbus-glib-1.so.2[7f5597c60000+20000]
[ 118.757166] udisks-daemon[6580]: segfault at 18 ip 00007f557b302990 sp

[Code]....

I suspect there is a bug or incompatablitiy with HAL/dbus/udisks but I cannot track it down.

General :: Mount Remotely External USB Drive With Ubuntu

Jul 5, 2010

I finished installing Lucid (Ubuntu 10.04) on two desktop PCs formerly running Windows XP. Both installs went like a charm.Machine A has an external USB drive connected to it that I previously used for MS Windows backups. I can see the contents of the external drive from A's "file explorer" and navigate its directories. I would like to have machine B auto-mount A's external USB drive.A while back, I did something similar with a RedHat host that would automount a connection to an external USB drive shared by a MS Windows machine. My "/etc/fstab" was updated to mount a CIFS share.

I used CIFS since RedHat does not support NTFS, which is the format of USB drive. It worked perfectly.Can I do the same thing or is there a simple way? I am thinking that I may need to setup NFS server and client but I am not sure.Is there a how-to on NFS and Ubuntu?

General :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount ?

Jan 20, 2010

I am trying to recover files off a 3.5" IDE Hard Drive that had Windows ME installed on it. I have access to a MacBook, Windows XP Desktop PC, and a cd with Ubuntu 8.10 on it.

Attempts:

1) If I make the HD the only primary master HD it won't boot up.

2) If I make it a slave drive it won't boot up.

3) I purchased an external enclosure from Radio Shack which turned out to be crap and online reports supported this conclusion. I got nowhere with that thing. Bestbuy doesn't sell 3.5" IDE enclosures.

4) By using an IDE / SATA to USB kit, I am able to connect the HD to the PC via USB cable. XP will detect the drive, however the HD will not my displayed under "My Computer" nor "Disk Management".

Onto linux (this is where I grabbed the Ubuntu cd):

5) When connected, the HD will show up under "Computer" as a "USB Drive". When I double click on it I get the error "Unable to mount location Can't mount file".

Allow me to show you some commands I ran:

General :: Fstab Line For Auto Mount Drive That All Users Can Read/write?

Jan 4, 2011

I have installed a cable that connects from the CPU's SATA motherboard connection to a removable drives' ESATA connection.I would like to be able to swap drives on the ESATA connection and have all users be able to read and write to these drives.I have created the directory /archive/ where I would like the drive(s) to mount.The drives are all formatted Fat 32 - but in the future I may use HFS for formatting.When I used the command (as root):mount /dev/sdc1 /archivethe drive was mounted (but read only)What can I use in my /etc/fstab file that will allow drives to be mounted and unmounted by all users on the system? (both reading and writing)Also, will I be able to mount and unmount these drives without shutting down? or will I need to reboot every time I want to change drives?

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount Options For External NTFS?

Jan 31, 2010

Have a 1TB external USB hard drive I want to use on both Windows and Linux (Mythbuntu 9.10), so I thought the easiest way would be to format it with NTFS. Installed the NTFS-3G package and I'm able to read and write to the drive fine from Linux, however I have a few questions;

1) How do I configure Linux so that when it mounts the NTFS partition it is writeable for user, group and other (bascially I want everyone to have read and write access)? Currently when the NTFS disk is mounted the permissions are restricted to the user only and I suspect I'll need to edit fstab for this, but don't have much experience here so need help with the specifics.

2) If my Linux PC is turned on with the external drive attached, the disk is not mounted until I double click on the icon on the desktop. Is there anyway I can configure Linux so that it will automatically mount the external disk when booting?

Below is what is in my fstab file at present;

Quote:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# -- This file has been automaticly generated by ntfs-config --
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

Server :: Auto Mount USB Drive To Specified Mount Point After Reboot

Jul 19, 2010

I have servers installed with RHEL 4 2.6.9-89.0.9 ELsmp. I tried using uuid and label in /etc/fstab to automount usb drives to mountpoints that I specify after reboot. Unfortunately, it just does not work in all my RHEL4 servers. After every reboot, /etc/fstab will be automatically modified and all configurations related to my USB drives will be changed. Irregardless of whether i use UUID or LABEL in my /etc/fstab.However, it works on RHEL5. But, upgrading is not an option in my environment. I have been googling around looking for alternatives but everything seems to point back to using UUID or LABEL in /etc/fstab. Anyone has tried something that works? Please help me, thank you.

General :: Possible To Mount USB External Drive As R/W For Multiple Users

Jan 12, 2010

I would like to mount a (permanently) attached external USB drive so that it is writable by multiple userids. Currently HAL is mounting the drive as writable to my owner user and readable for group and others. My m/c also runs as an FTP server and I would like said FTP server to be able to write files to the external drive. Just being able to specify a gid would probably do the job for me.

I have googled HAL and UDEV and also attempted to configure usbmount to do this, all to no avail. I am running SLES 10.3. So in summary, can I & how do I either make HAL mount the drive with gid=nnn, or should I not use HAL and simply make an entry in /etc/fstab and make sure a I get the same device address for this USB drive each time I boot?

Debian Hardware :: Auto-mount External 2.0 TB (usb 3.0)

Jan 29, 2015

I bought a new external HDD - a Seagate 2 TB (actually 1.8 TB) but am unable to mount it. The drive is USB 3.0 while the ports on my system are USB 2.0 but that is NOT the issue. I am able to see the HDD without an issue on the CLI. I am on Jessie 64-bit.

Code: Select all$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 0bc2:ab24 Seagate RSS LLC
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

[Code]....

My question is why it does not automount. Also if I should try to manually mount it, how should I go about it ?

I got the disks pre-formatted in around 500 GB (or as close to it) multiples as can be seen.

The other question is why does /dev/sdb4 show some different dialog than the rest ?

Those disks are for the core-system and some file server related stuff.Beside the server i got two external LaCie boxes that contains 4x1tb disks each. The disks inside the boxes are RAID5, so the system sees every box as one whole "disk".Now to the problem. I just can�t get those "two" RAID cofigurations two be auto mounted at boot. I have tried to put them in /etc/fstab with a whole bunch of different options but nothing works. The system sees them but don't auto mount them, and i can manually mount them without any problem at all. I have tried to "google" the problem but can't find any similar

General :: External Hard Drive Won't Mount On Karmic - Macbook 2,1

Manually mount or fix my external hard drive. I can't format the drive because I have important data on it. The drive is 1TB Select USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drive from Iomega. When I plug it in, a message appears that reads:

"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2,missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so".

Also, I plugged in the drive, typed the command "sudo fdisk -l" in the terminal, and received the following:

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount Usb Drive Since Upgrading From 8.04 To 10.04?

Sep 19, 2010

I can't mount my usb drive since upgrading from 8.04 to 10.04. I have tried

sudo apt-get install ntfsprogs

Which was installed, then

sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdb1

The message I got was this

Failed to determine whether /dev/sdb1 is mounted: No such file or directory.Mounting volume... Error opening partition device: No such file or directory.Failed to startup volume: No such file or directory.

[code]...

Not sure what any of this means, but there is nothing wrong with the drives. I have 4 external hard drives and I receive the same message from all of them. On the other hand, sometimes it doesn't even recognize the hard drive at all.

Ubuntu Servers :: Auto Mount Of An Usb Drive?

Sep 1, 2010

I just changed the os on my media server from Windows Home Server to Unbuntu 10.4 server. I got most of it working (samba, twonkymedia)

The only thing i have left to get working is the backup of that server. I installed bacula as i beleive it will do the job (unless someone has a better and simpler to configure idea) and i would like it to backup to my external usb 1Tb hard drive. I am able to mount the drive manually but this server gets turn on and off often to save power (and cut the electric bill) when not in use. I tried adding a line to fstab but when a do that, the server gets stuck on the startup even with the drive turned on. I read somewhere that i should use the UUID of the drive as it could change from sbd1 to sbh1 on restart so i did, same result.

Slackware :: External USB Hard Drive Auto-mounting Error

Just installed Slackware 13 this morning. It's been a long time since I last tried Linux, but Slack works (a lot easier than Slack 8 did back when I last used it!) quite well. I'm using the XFCE desktop and it's smooth as silk except for one odd problem-I cannot get any of my USB drives to mount. I just plugged in my Lexar 4GB USB flash drive and received an error message. Here's from /var/log/messages from when I initally plugged in the drive (I have a 500GB WD MyBook USB external drive that is always plugged in):

Any ideas or suggestions of what to look at? I'm not familiar with HAL in Linux although I've seen plenty of discussion about it and have an idea of what it's supposed to (or break! ).

Ubuntu Networking :: Auto Mount Of USB Drive Not Working Via Ssh?

I have this ubuntu machine that lives under my desk and is basically a utility machine. Mainly I ssh to it and get synchronize/backup files, etc.

When I reboot, for some reason the auto mount for my usb drives doesn't work until I actually hook up the monitor and log in to the gui. When I ssh in after reboot, I'm unable to access my USB drives! "Not Authorized"

I'm not sure how to mount a drive from the command line... really I just want the machine to auto mount the drives when it starts up... gui login or no.
