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.
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'
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.
I'm running 64 bit Ubuntu, 11.04. When I first installed, I could plug in my USB thumb drive and it was automatically mounted for me. Lately, this no longer happens... I use the Disk Utility to mount it manually. What I did wrong to lose this automatic mounting?
i'm working with x86 small computer having 128 ram and 233MHz speed in processor nd i'm going to do a project which need auto mounting of a pen drive if you can post a url that I can download those OS.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I'm running OpenSuse 11.2. I've got it running mostly the way I want and it connects to my wireless internet no problem. I have a external hard-drive on my Windows machine setup as a share folder. I can mount the drive with:
mount //10.13.23.2/D /home/james/mnt/win However when I do mount like this it doesn't give my any read/write privliages on the drive. Also on a slightly different issue but still mounting related I have my HDD partitioned into four main drives (not including swap etc). They are my Windows drive, a seperate storage partition formatted for Windows, my main linux drive and a seperate parition for linux storage.
I want to have my Windows drive, my Windows storage drive and my linux storage drive all mounted on boot. I tried adding these to fstab, and they mount fine but again I have no read/write permissions. My fstab looks like this:
Lastly I would like my Windows Share drive to mount on boot but I have been advised that I would need to write a shell script for this, to do network checks as obviously I won't always be connecting to my network.
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?
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?
Dropbox will not start properly because my Lucid installation is on a SS HD (/dev/sdc) but my data, including my Dropbox folder is on an internal NTFS-formatted HD (/dev/sda), and I also have another internal HD for backups (/dev/sdb).
For some reason I can get the backups HD to auto-mount on startup, but not the data HD. My fstab file looks like this:
I would like my Ubuntu server to show up as a drive on my XP home machine. I have loaded samba on to the server but I can only get it to show as the printer and faxes under my work group. Also is there a way to have my Ubuntu laptop to auto mount the server when I am on my home network?
I have a few drives that I would like to mount in my home directory. I know I need to add something like this to my fstab: /dev/hda2 ~/Music ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0I just don't know how to find the /dev/hda2 part
want to create a iSCSI connection which mounts /home directory to a share on my NAS via iSCSI. Does anyone know if this is possible on a RHEL 5.4 machine? I am building the server from scratch and then creating the iSCSI mount point in /etc/fstab. After the /home directory is mounted on the mail server, I will copy all the mailboxes over to the /home directory via iSCSI.
We have a Centos 5.6 server mounting two iSCSI volumes from an HP P2000 storage array. Multipathd is also running, and this has been working well for the few months we have been using it. The two volumes presented to the server were created in LVM, and worked without problem.We had a requirement to reboot the server, and now the iSCSI volumes will no longer mount. From what I can tell, the iSCSI connection is working ok, as I can see the correct sessions, and if I run 'fdisk -l' I can see the iSCSI block devices, but the O/S isn't seeing the filesystems. Any LVM command does not show the volumes at all, and 'vgchange -a y' only lists the local boot volume, not the iSCSI volumes. My concern is that, the output of 'fdisk -l' says 'Disk /dev/xxx doesn't contain a valid partition table' for all the iSCSI devices. Research shows that performing the vgchange -a y command should automatically mount any VG's that aren't showing, but it doesn't work.
There's a lot of data on these iSCSI volumes, and I'm no LVM expert. I've read that some have had problems where LVM starts before iSCSI and things get a bit messed up, but I don't know if this is the case here (I can't tell), but if there's a way of switching this round that might help, I'm prepared to give it a go.There was absolutely no indication there were any problems with these volumes, so corruption is highly unlikely.
I upgrade my fedora 10 to fedora 11 without any issues but I noticed that now when I insert a dvd or cd it will not mount it automatically. Previously when I used fedora 10 it worked like a charm not it will not mount it. I just want when I insert cd or dvd my fedora to mount it automatically.
I currently mount my smb shares by adding the appropriate line to fstab. Now my son also uses my laptop (F13 by the way) and I would also like to automount the shares for him but as a different user because there are some directories he should not have access to.
I have never done this before but stood up a new Debian (testing) x64 system. It only has 146GB available for RAID1 so I created a 500GB iSCSI LUN on my NAS device on the network and am really confused how I can attach my Debian to the iSCSI LUN I created. Right now the OS is installed all locally on the machine but I would like the iSCSI LUN to be the /home directory for mail storage. Is this possible or do I need to mount the LUN to a newly created folder / mount point that is locally attached?
Currently I have a dual boot system it consists of Fedora 12 and Windows Vista, at this time when I am logged into fedora 12 I can select the windows vista partition in the f12 file manager, I am than prompted for the root password and after entering the password, the drive mounts as read/write with no problem. How can I automate this mounting process so once I login as a standard user the NTFS partition mounts without any input? I would like this to auto mount without prompting for a password or having to double click on the vista partition each time.
I was running ubuntu and windows 7 as dual boot, I taught of trying out fedora 13 and installed it. I faced some issues with grub, like it does not detected my ubuntu, so, I used my ubuntu live cd and restored my ubuntus grub. So, now I want to use the fedora grub. I cannot restore it. Can I get restoring the grub from fedora's live CD?
And, I am using gnome as desktop environment, when I go to places and click anyof my partitions, it asks me root password, I am little frustrated to give password of root every time I mount any-of the partitions. In my ubuntu, It doesn't need any root password, It just auto mounts the partitions. How do we do that?
