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 :: 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 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.

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 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 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 ?

Server :: Auto Mount External Hdd-drives?

Mar 17, 2010

I have a problem that i have tried to solve for a couple of days.server with some internal disks. 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

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba And External Drive - Unable To Mount Location - Failed To Mount Windows Share - Dialog Box

May 25, 2010

I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop
ame of folder"

My smb.conf file looks like this:

That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.

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 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

Nov 29, 2009

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?

Nov 13, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Auto Mount 2nd FakeRAID Drive At Boot

Jun 18, 2011

I have a full working Mythbuntu 11.04 on a FakeRAID system (via ICH10R chipset). The OS is sitting on a 250GB partition and working fine. I am trying to get the 7.07TB partition mounted so that I can use it to store all my movies. When I mount it via the [URL] all works fine. When I reboot it cannot mount due to device being not ready or unavailable It appears the superblock goes missing at reboot. I have it formatted to ext4 with a GPT partition table. If I reformat and remount then all works fine again until I reboot.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Auto Mount Flash Drive?

Apr 15, 2010

My Fedora does not auto detect a flash drive if I get to attach it with the OS already running. I still have to make a reboot and attached the drive right from the start in order for it to be detected/mounted.

Unlike In Mint 7, Ubuntu and XP, it automatically detects the flash drive as soon as it is attached.

make my Fedora detect the flash drive so that I would not have to reboot everytime I would use it.

FWIW here are some outputs:
Code: # /etc/fstab
# Created by anaconda on Thu Feb 4 06:06:47 2010
#
# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount With PySDM - Drive Including Audio Library Is Gone

Jul 27, 2010

I wanted to auto mount one of my drives at the startup so I installed PySDM. After that every time I login to Ubuntu every single drive is mounted with a new name, for example one of my drives was located at /media/Local Disk and now it's /media/sda6, so every link to that drive including my audio library is gone. I unchecked the 'auto-mount at startup' option in PySDM and it didn't solve anything, I even uninstall PySDM and it everything is mounted as soon as Ubuntu starts up. The funny thing is there is a 10GB recovery drive on my hard disk that was never visible in Ubuntu and I was happy with that, but now it is mounted on startup too, with the name of sda1. What should I do?

Fedora Hardware :: Combo DVD / CDRW Drive Won't Auto-mount?
