Server :: Mounted UFS Ro Under But Unable To Read All Folders?
Jul 1, 2011
I have a low maybe medium experience with linux and no experience with unix and migrating from freenas to Ubuntu.I'm trying to transfer 12 TB of data from UFS file system to ext3 file system under Ubuntu 10.04. The server has two 16TB virtual disks (raid10) and one 4TB virtual disk (raid10 too).I mount the UFS virtual disk in Ubuntu with this command:
mount -r -t ufs -o ufstype=ufs2 /dev/sda1 /home/ufsdisk
I am able to read only 6TB of data instead of 12TB. The missing folders can be seen in
i was trying to format one drive, accidentally formated another, told the format process to stop, and i'm unable to read the folders or files in the drive. i see some greek, odd symbols... But cant open the folders.
I have mounted samba volume and I need to have write permissions for every new folder that's being created (currently, by default, on every newly created folder i have only read and execute permissions).I tried changing umask, but with no effect on mounted folder, umask changed only for local filesystem. I tried mounting with umask option, but with no effect again.I'm using ArchLinux on this machine, and I installed samba using default package manager (pacman).
Every time I mount one partition manually as read write it works fine for a couple of minutes before reverting to read only. It still appears as read-write when I list the mounted directories but won't let me write to it. I have tried unmounting and remounting it, but after a few minutes it always ends up as read-only again.
$ mount /dev/sda3 on /scratch type ext3 (rw) $ mkdir /scratch/file
I restore tape backup on my Linux server. At the time of booting the server it cannot able to read the filesystems.
I am getting the following message, Code: Your system appears to have shutdown uncleanly Forcing file system integrity check due to default setting Checking root filesystem fsch.ext3: file system has unsupported features (S) (/) e2fsck: Get a never version of e2fsck! (FAILED) *** An error occurred during the file system check. *** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot *** when you leave the shell. Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue):
I am running ubuntu 8.10 on an old gateway as a server. I have vent up and running just fine. I went to configure the ventrilo_srv.ini file and now that I have made the changes, I need to restart the server program, which I am having problems doing. The following command returns the following:
sudo /home/taylor/ventrilo/ventsrv/ventrilo_srv restart Ventrilo Server - Public - Version 3.0.3 (c)Copyright 1999-2008 Flagship Industries, Inc. Unable to open configuration file 'ventrilo_srv.ini'. ERROR: Unable to read configuration data. Exiting.
What am I doing wrong? Did I change something that shouldn't have been changed. I only set the name to something other than default and set the admin password.
I administer a remote server via SSH that runs CentOS 5.5. I have been unsuccessful in all my attempts to write to two different external USB hard drives with a single ext3 partition when logged in as root.
When attempting to create a "test" directory I get one of two messages:
Both drives *appear* to have filesystem issues. When I run an fsck on either drive, I get:
Keep in mind this is a newly-formatted, empty drive.
Not putting stock in the odds that I've had two hard drives (different sizes and brands) with the exact same hardware problem, I'm going to assume this is a software issue, although maybe it isn't. Hence, my post in "Linux - General". I've heard talk elsewhere of controller (chipset) issues coming into play. Is this valid?
Okay, here's the information you'll need to make a diagnosis....
Here's the output of a "df -h" command:
Here's the contents of my /etc/fstab:
Here's the output of "cat /etc/mtab":
Here's the output of a mount command:
Here's the output of fdisk on the device in question:
The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 48641.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024, and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)
Command (m for help):
I've got someone with access to the box if necessary. But it might take days to implement solutions since this isn't his full-time job. Remote solutions are, therefore, preferable.
I am using ubuntu 10.04.My samsung e2120 has external micro sd card of 2GB.When i connect mobile to computer via cable in windows , it works normal as USB mass storage as configured by me in mobile settings.But in case of ubuntu 10.04
I am using Gentoo Linux and for a while now, the root file system is mounted read-only on booting. For obvious reasons, this is quite annoying as most services do not start up correctly (I do not use a separate file system for /var). After the system is up, I have to log in, remount the root file system read-write, fix /etc/mtab, mount all other file systems in from /etc/fstab and then start up all the missing daemons. I know that there are ways to make a system run properly with a read-only file system, but I would rather restore the old behaviour of a writable root file system.
The strange thing is that after running mount / -o remount,rw, the file system is mounted in writable mode without any errors. I suspected some problem with fsck, but now I have disabled automatic file system checks on the partition (tune2fs -c0 -i0).When I run dmesg, only these lines mention the partition at all, although I am not sure if not something gets lost because /var/log is not writable:
EXT3-fs (sda5): mounted filesystem with writeback data mode</code> EXT3-fs (sda5): using internal journal The line in /etc/fstab looks like this:
I have a 3ware controller that has a RAID 1 of two SATA disks.After an outage, the linux box (which is running ubuntu), restarted and the partition is now mounted read only. I only have the "/" mount point (this is a test server).Now, if I go to the 3ware controller by pressing ALT-3 while booting, I don't see any indication that there is something wrong with the disks.If I let the computer boot, I'm asked by fdisk if I want to fix/ignore/etc the inconsistencies found.
I've recently upgraded to 10.04 and have noticed that all the files or folders I've been creating recently are read only. I can manipulate the folders on my ubuntu system itself and create new entries, folderes, subfolders, and save files. IE a payment receipt in pdf format. However if I then try to move or copy any of these to my DROBO (data storage device) the file gets the LOCK Icon on it and becomes read only. If it is a subfolder I can no longer copy to it and if it's a regular file, say a pdf or flv I can't modify it. Attempting to change the file permissions on either my ubuntu desktop or any other folder works but once it goes to the drobo I lose the ability to change it off of ---. Again, this was all working fine before doing the upgrade to 10.04. Yes I did do a clean install to 10.04.
I wanted to create something that is pretty standard in the computer world: a search folder that shows me all the unread email in both local and remote (IMAP: Ubuntu/Postfix/Dovecot) folders.
1. Create Search Folder
2. Edit properties to find: "Status is not Read"
Viewing the folder was a bit of a nightmare.
If I clicked on any email that was unread, the email would appear for a moment, it's status would then change to 'read', it would then vanish, the next unread email would come up and then vanish. All unread email would then be flipped through until there was none in the search folder.I now have to go through all of my folders to make sure I haven't missed any important emails.Is there a way to create a rational search folder for unread mail given this setup?
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 using Wubi on an ACER Aspire 5000 XP laptop. Everything runs ok and I can access my Windows folders from Ubuntu through the host directory but only as Read Only. I have checked to make sure that the Windows folder I want to access (My Documents) is not designated as Read Only in Windows.
The titles says about everything. CD's are perfectly automounted.WhenI insert a DVD however (I tried various DVDs), absolutely nothing happens, as if I would have inserted nothing or a blank DVD.I already read lots of threads and nothing o help... Here are the outputs of a few commands that might or might not be useful.A line I added myself in fstab which appears completely useless:
Code: /dev/sr0 /media/dvd auto utf8,user,noauto,exec 0 0 Code:
I am running the latest suse release downloaded directly from their website. I ran the installation after buring the dvd and everything seemed to be working fine. after the installation i ran updates and used it for a little bit. When i shut it down that night and went to restart it I got an error that stated the OS wasnt there. I then went through the installation and everything and it retained the information from the installation before (web history etc.) but for some reason every time I reboot or shut it down the system is not able to read the startup information from the hard drive and will not come on without me re installing it.
I've had a look at some similar threads but as I'm very new to linux they're already a bit technical for me. Sorry, this calls for someone with patience. I gather from other threads that disconnecting an external drive without unmounting is a no-no, and this seems to be the likely cause. Now the disk is read only and I'm unable to change any settings through the usual control panel on ubuntu. I'm just not familiar with the terminal instructions. I tried to cut and past a few command lines from other threads but I got some warnings that proceding could damage data. Like this one: WARNING! Running e2fsck on a mounted filesystem may cause SEVERE filesystem damage.
Whenever I right-click on a mounted usb drive, I have the option to "safely remove" it. However, it I choose this option, I inevitably get the following error message:
Unable to stop drive Error detaching: helper exited with exit code 1: Detaching device /dev/sdb USB device: /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.6) SYNCHRONIZE CACHE: synchronize cache(10): Fixed format, current; Sense key: Key=9 Additional sense: Logical unit not ready, cause not reportable Info fld=0x0  FAILED: No such file or directory (Continuing despite SYNCHRONIZE CACHE failure.) STOP UNIT: start stop unit: transport: Host_status=0x07 [DID_ERROR] Driver_status=0x00 [DRIVER_OK, SUGGEST_OK] FAILED: No such file or directory
I'm currently using Lucid, but this happened on Karmic as well. The way I see it, the result I would like would be either: 1. The "safely remove drive" command just unmounts the drive (I can't imagine what else it does anyways, besides give me this stupid error) 2. There is no "safely remove drive" option.
Noticed this in both Ubuntu 10.04 & now Mint 9, both Gnome. I didn't have PCLinuxOS2010 KDE installed long enough to experience it so I don't know if it's a property of Linux or part of Gnome.I have two users, both myself and my wife, and I noticed thatn I mount an internal SATA drive I can only see/access it under the user that mounted it. In order for the other user to see it I need to un-mount the drive. Drive is a 1TB SATA formatted NTFS.I can't imagine this is normal and the 2nd drive is shared for pics/data/etc. Strange quirk is that my install is on a partitioned primary drive, 320gb, that also has Windows on it so the OS must access the drive in order to boot - both users can see the mounted 215gb Windows NTFS partition simultaneously.Is there a setting that needs to be changed or is this normal?
Perty self explanitory, I'm trying to boot up ubunto server edition 10.10 from a USB stick (pen drive) and it works fine until step 3 when it says "Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted. This probably means that the CD-ROM was not put in the drive. If so you can insert it and try again
Try again to mount the CD-ROM? <Yes> <No>"
I don't have an installation cd-rom! I put the .iso file onto a memory stick, inserted it into my old computer (which i will turn into a server later) , restarted it and got past the first two slides and got this error? Do I have to put the iso on a cd-rom?
I have a web application(java 5, mysql server) installed on Tomcat on Red Hat 5.Part of the functionality is to allow the upload of files to a windows share. I have mounted the share using theAny file I create here from the terminal gets sions."-rwxrwxrwx"The problem is that when the application server creates the file it gets created with the following."-rw-r--r--"How can I get files created from the server to be "-rwxrwxrwx"
Ive managed to install samba, I've shared a folder. I can access from a Windows 7 machine via \ubuntupublic. I can put files in the folder form the ubuntu machine and edit them on the windows box. I can put files in the folder/share from the Windows box but then I cannot edit them on the Ubuntu machine (they are read only and have a "Lock" over them). I can fix this by going to the properties of the file/folder in Windows and manually assigning "Everybody" full control (then the lock disappears and all is well.) I want read/write access to all the folders contents from both machines all the time (security is NOT a concern I WANT the permissions wide open) what am I doing wrong?
i got problem which slows my boot to linux. Before loading Ubuntu logo in console i see fast flash with words: "Warning: unable to find a suitable fs in /proc/mount, is it mounted? Use --subdomainfs to override." What should i do? To fix that warning?
When I try to create a folder from firefox (while downloading stuff), it says "unable to create folder. permission denied." But when I create it using terminal (i.e. 'mkdir foo') it works. Firefox is running as the same user as the terminal, so shouldn't the two programs have the same permissions ?
