I have a folder shared over NFS that contains three sub folders: (Machine A) /usr/nfsshare/a /usr/nfsshare/b /usr/nfsshare/c
I can see these three folders just fine on machine B via nfs. sudo mount machineA:/usr/nfsshare /mnt/ShareMountOnB Now I want to mount a second drive in machine A, and mount it as a fourth shared folder: mkdir /usr/nfsshare/d sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /usr/nfsshare/d
I can see and access all four folders on machine A just fine. I can see all four folders on machine B in /mnt/ShareMountOnB, but when I descend into folder d, it is empty! Bizarrely I can create files in this empty folder d on machine B, but I have no idea where they are being held. They are certainly not in machine A. What I have to do to access the real contents of folder d. I have already changed all permissions and owners to be identical to the other folders.Sharing it over samba to a Windows PC works fine.
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).
I am using an embedded platform in which I have connected an external harddisk (/dev/sda). The SCSI driver is present and I am using the SG_IO interface for performing the SMART commands with the Hard Disk. (Unfortunately not all the HDIO ioclts are present. So I opted for the SG_IO ioctl). But the data transfer (reading/write data from/to sector) is not working with the SG_IO ioctls. So I searched for some other options. Later in one of the places, I found that we can actually mount the /dev/sda to some mount point in /mnt and then make a XFS file system (mkfs.xfs) of this.
And then we can create the directories and do file operations on this mounted directory. Here the simple read/write systems calls can be used for this. I was thinking about this implementation. But I am confused how I can map the actual LBA (Logical Block Address) to the device file offset. I mean if I want to write to the sector 5, there will be a LBA for it. So I can do lseek on my device and then write the data there. So how the mapping between LBA and device file offset can be calculated.
Is the mount point for external media (like USB) always /media?
Because in a Debian system, if I plug in any USB device that goes to the /media folder. So is it the case with all the other Linux flavors like Fedora, Ubuntu, etc. If a USB device is automatically mounted will it always go to the /media directory?
I am not concerned about the name of the devices. I am looking for every external media (like USB) to be listed under /media directory so that my code can run on any flavor of Linux.
I have a CentOS 5 production server with multiple OS-managed RAID-1 sets. I'd like to add a new mirrored set and move the /var partition to the new drives. On a non-RAID system I would boot from the install CD to edit fstab and copy the existing files to the new drive, but I'm pretty sure booting off the install CD does not recognize my RAID setup.
In my machine, there are 2 mount points - / and /userdata. From the root user, I want to create an oracle user at the /userdata mount point, i.e the home of the oracle user should be mounted on /userdata.
I built a Suse Linux server on vmware. I attached an RDM to the server and can now see the drive as a "Mass Storage Drive" in Applications - computer. When I double click on the icon, I get an error message that indicates that the drive can not be mounted. I tried to mount in gnome terminal using: mount /dev/sdb and get "can't find .dev/sdb in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab". I tried adding device that I would like to mount to fstab, but don't think I have the settings correct. I looking for any info that might step me through the process.
I have two servers, 82 and 70.My exports file on 82 reads /...70(rw)on 70 I have a mountpoint called mnt_for_82I execute on 70mount -t nfs -o rw ...82:/ mnt_for_82I go to server 70 and indeed can read and travers the mounted subdirectories. However, I try to create a file or subdirectory under the mount point on 70 and I get a *Permission Denied* error.I'm sure there is a simple explanation for this issue as well as a correct nomenclature for what I'm trying to do in nfs
I am copying some backup files to a NAS by connecting an NFS export on the NAS to a mount point on my linus box. I then copy the files to it with a cron job that runs nightly. I have mounted the NAS to /mnt/nas. How can I test that the mount point is active before I copy to it? I wouldn't want to copy to /mnt/nas unless it was actually connected to the NAS.
My current pc running on LINUX raid 1 with both 80bg hdd, the /dev/md0 is growing. Either a) I need to create another mount point to utilise the space.How i do this ? OR b) Clone the existing 80gb with 250gb, so /dev/mdo got more space?
# df -k Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/md0 20161084 15577508 3559440 82% /
I have a program that can create a fuse. For that i have to specify a mount point , like mono ccfs /mount. But how will I make /mount to be a fuse mount point? I donno whether my question sounds right or makes sense. But I want to create a fuse mount basically to provide it to the program. I dont hv any device or fs to mount initially .
I need to know particular mount point mounted or not before send data to that mount point.Are there any commandsi used this command. mount -t nfs 172.16.102.50:/root/ESSR_share /root/shared_storage/pc50 -o rw,hard,intr but it take long time (when machine(172.16.102.50) is not available)
I'm using some software that using mount point such as truecrypt. I also mount shared folder on other machine (fileserver) and publish it using ftp. The problem is when the truecrypt volume dismounted or the shared folder mount point loosing connection to the fileserver, user can write to the mount point without knowing that they actually not writing to the truecrypt volume or to the shared folder.
My question is, when sometime the server reboot and truecrypt volume is not mounted yet, how to prevent write to the mount point? I dont run truecrypt mount automatically for security reason.Some question for shared folder, if fileserver restart and the shared folder mount point got disconnected, how to prevent write to the mount point?
I have a samba share that I mount locally at boot through fstab. The share is writable and if I access the share directly, say with konqueror and smb (smb://hostname/sharename) then I can do anything I want (create, write, delete, edit, files/directories). I have a mount point on my local machine
and I (username dtest) was unable to do anything except read files and create directories trying to do them to the local mountpoint except as root. I figured it would be a matter of
chown -R dtest /shares/mp3
but I was unable to do that even as root, I kept getting permission denied. When I did
ls -alt /shares/ it told me the owner was 1000 and the group was root. Dtest was already a member of the root group and I was able to
chmod -R 774
as root but I still couldn't do anything except read and create directories directly via the mountpoint. Ultimately I solved this by changing the uid of user dtest via kuser and then just chowning my home directory back to dtest. It seems like as root I should be able to change the owner of the directory. I know it's because this is a samba share, but it doesn't make any sense why root couldn't just chown it. Is there another way to change the owner of a directory, or is this set by the machine hosting the samba share?
Using SUSE 11 with Gnome. I mounted a CIFS share from a Windows server as /mnt/win. With the file browser, I can browse to file system/mnt/win and then the files and folders of the Windows share come up fine and I can open them. When I use the file browser to browse to network, the server hosting this share is listed. Then I browse to that server and it lists no shares (nothing at all). I can't go any further than the server. Is there a separate authentication necessary for the file browser to see this share from the network place?
Also I have all files it asks for installed including dostools..Btw I used usb creator, then went to gparted and did something. The system is fat 32 now but with same message, not including ext4 part. Just the mount point message, and something about dosftools and mtools, wihich also are installed.
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.
using Ubuntu file browser, I browsed my Windows network and logged on to a Windows PC. Now Ubuntu file browser shows me "C$ on WinPC" as a folder. I can open it, read/write files, etc.But from bash prompt, I don't see anything of type CIFS/SMBFS listed in the output of "mount". Only the usual suspects (like local CDROM). How can refer to Windows files from Linux commandline?
I have a HDD that cannot be bootup (should be the boot file problem, I want to get back the data in it, so I plug it to another server and trying to copy the data from the failure HDD to this server. Now, the server is re-boot and in maintenance mode as the HDD cannot do the system check. when I try to copy data, it pops the server is read-only system. 1. How to let me write data to the server ; or 2. Let me boot up the server, then I will mount the HDD to it and copy the data to the server.
I backed up my windows hard drive using dd and turned it into one huge image file. I didn't realize this beforehand, but this image is not an ISO equivalent type. However, it would be nice if I could access everything on the image just by mounting it instead of having to transfer it back to /dev/sda or something.
We purchased a new database system at work last October, ditching the old system because of a lack of support from the vendor. This is a retail Point of Sale and Backoffice database system. I am not sure what system the new one runs on, but the system we replaced was a Firebird data base. The reason I am posting is because we are now in need of the information contained in the old database which was not completely imported into the new system. Unfortunately, we parted company with the old vendor under extremely hostile conditions, and they are not a source of help for this problem, nor are the new vendors.
Basically the problem is this: The database in on a Windows XP system and I found a copy of SQL Manager Lite 2008 on the system, which after quite a bit of studying, I figured out how to extract the database into a removable file. I have this file (178MB) on a USB stick in a file called Backoffice.fbd. I can get into this database with MySQL. All I want to be able to do get into the database and create tab deliminated spreadsheet files for each of the database sections (Customers, Repairs, Sales History, stock files, etc.) Is it possible to do this with Ubuntu and MySQL and if so, can an expert suggest one or two things to get me started.
Is it possible to mount a 2nd hard disk without erasing the data that is already on it? If so, what command must I enter. The system recognizes that the disk is there, I just can't access the data because it hasn't been mounted.
