General :: Mounting Fedora Machine Drive Via USB Connection
Jun 3, 2010
I have a Fedora machine that was installed with Linux LVM. I took the drive of that machine, connect it to disk enclosure, and connect to another Linux machine via USB connection. I can see that the drive /dev/sda is there:
[root@dd ~]# /sbin/fdisk -l
Disk /dev/hda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes .....
I want to copy files from this drive. I try to mount it, but it didn't work. The /dev/sda1 is mounted fine, but it has only boot stuff.
[root@dd ~]# mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/drive
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
How I can mount the drive and copy my files from this drive.
I have a machine running Ubuntu 9.10 that has an external HD with shared folders music folder and media downloads folder). I have set up SAMBA on that machine.
On my laptop I am running a dual boot system with Windows Vista and using wubi install, Ubuntu 9.10.
In Windows, I am able to wirelessly connect to the shared folder and access the music folder and the media downloads folder on my Desktop Ubuntu machine. All is good.
When I boot in Ubuntu, I am unable to connect to the shared folder under Places > Network I can negotiate to the MSHOME (the name of my work group). Once selected I get the error Failed to retrieve Shared List from server error message.
I know this has been covered in many threads before, but I'm stuck not finding my exact situation or an answer. I'm a newbie using a Debian Linux machine as the client and Windows XP machine as the server. I have successfully mounted the XP Network drive on the Linux machine using commands from the root terminal:
mount -t smbfs -o username="Windows Username",password=windowspassword //XPcomputername/folder /mountpoint/
However when I put the command in the ect/fstab file as suggested in several posts, I don't get any result on boot up. I.e. I can't get the network drive to mount on start up, I always have to manually mount it from the root terminal.
Need help on a activating xDSL Connection on machine startup, i have configured the internet through it but every time when machine boots up...it is annoying to activate this interface manually. do guide on this....i am using Fedora core 12...and can you help on the firefox's "work offline" bottle neck.
I am having issues mounting a share on a Windows 2008 Server from all of our Redhat 4 machines. I am trying to back up files before wiping and upgrading them to 5. I will try and post as much information that I gathered after trying different things. I am a newer hire for this network and a Linux newbie.
The scenario is this:
1. Windows 2008 Active Directory. 2. Redhat Enterprise 4 machines
I have root access and I tried entering at the terminal:
" smbclient -L "servername" -U "username"
get the "password" prompt I enter my password and get:
I check event viewer on the 2008 box and last week was seeing:
Event ID: 4625 Keywords: Audit Failure etc, etc "Account for which Logon failed: Security ID: NULL SID Account name: anonymous Account Domain:MYGROUP Failure Information: Failure Reason: Uknown user name or bad password etc, etc
Now the last couple of days the audit failures have not shown up on the 2008 Server box even though I attempted to log in.
The end users used to just use Konquerer smb://"servername"/"share" and it worked but for some reason starting last week this no longer works. Nothing was changed that I know of, this network is in a sealed classified environment with no external access. All additions to the network are monitored and no unapproved software is installed. The lab is in a vault type environment and only a few people know the combination and alarm pass codes so no chance of somebody adding stuff without me knowing it.
I would think with the locked out message it was an issue with my user account but that works fine on the Windows side so I tried my Linux credentials with no success when trying to mount the directory.
Is there something anybody can suggest Linux or Windows side to check? No user accounts work connecting to the Windows share.
p.s. I am aware the above command is only to see the Windows shares but i get the same thing when I just try and mount using CIFS or SMBFS.
I have an 320GB hard drive with F11 installed. Lately, I got a 1.5TB new hard drive, on which I have installed F12. Now I want to use the 320GB as a second hard drive since I have lots of data on it. My question here is as I boot my desktop, how does it recognize to boot from the 1.5TB and consider the 320GB as a secondary? Is there anything I need to setup in BIOS? My motherboard has one extra SATA connection left for a second hard drive.
I am having issues mounting my non-OS hard drive (/dev/sda).I had the following information in my /etc/fstab file:/dev/sda /mnt/storage auto defaults 0 0This worked as expected; however, I decided the modify this so I can have it automounted to my home directory (/home/jesse/storage)./dev/sda /home/jesse/storage auto defaults 0 0This /mnt/storage remains intact even after rebooting the system.
I've got a semi-retired hdd (with a few bad sectors my disk utility tells me) formatted in ext4 that can be mounted onto the Desktop after boot provided root password is offered first. I thought it would be straight forward to mount it at boot with something in etc/fstab like :
/dev/sdb /home/Jo/Desktop ext4 But this doesn't work, is there a glaring error here ?
Various threads suggest permission restrictions could be the cause but i have had no success with them
I just switched to Fedora (from Ubuntu) and can't seem to get Fedora to automount my old drive (which is my old Ubuntu drive). I tried the following with no luck (in fact, when I did this, it chocked during boot and went into emergency mode:
In /etc/fstab, I entered:
/dev/sdc /media/UBUNTU_DRIVE defaults 0 0
Another odd thing is the UBUNTU_DRIVE directory just disappears after reboot (and I know it was there before rebooting).
I have two additional drives in my tower, and both do show up in gparted, so I'm not sure why they're not getting mounted.
Why can't Fedora auto mount secondary (internal drives) automatically?
What can I do to tell it to auto mount the secondary drives (I have two) automatically?
I am noticing problems accessing the firewall gui and mounting the second hard drive in my PC running Fedora 13. This is only when I am accessing the machine with VNC. If I am sitting in front of the physical machine, I have no problems at all. I would like VNC to behave more like I am sitting in front of the computer. Is there a way to do this? Thank you in advance for your feedback.
I looked through the guides and didn't find what I was looking for. Here is what I have so far:
That's the drive I am wanting to mount with full permissions for anyone. Right now the folder only has root permissions. Is there a specific group ID I assign this in fstab so it's automatically mounted with full permissions for anyone who logs in?
I'm trying to mount a hard drive, but I get an error. $Logfile indicates unclean shutdown (0,0) Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Operations not supported Mount is deniedbecause NTFS is marked to be in use.it gives me some optionsmount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/System -0 force (and error not found)/dev/sdb1 /media/System ntsf-3g force 0 0 (i get permission denied) All done as root. I have had no problem before mounting hard drives like this. So I don't know what the problem may be.
I had windows vista on one partition, xp on another documents on another and programs on another.When I installed ubuntu on a new partition it very kindly let me see all the other partitions and mount them as necessary. I would like all my ubuntu files, documents music downloads to go right on to the documents partition so when I back up that drive to an external I have it backs up the documents drive it has all the files I have created in vista or ubuntu. Eventually I want to leave windows completely but I would still want to store all the ubuntu files on the documents drive.
I can go to "places" and mount the documents drive but what I would like to do is when I fire up ubuntu that the documents drive mounts automatically.
by default fedora 13 mounts the drive under /media/uuid, with no read or write access to users other than root. I need to be able to turn the drive on, have it automount so that I can read and write to it without logging in as root every time and dealing with changing permissions on files, etc.
In other distributions, this has worked flawlessly, but I'm not familiar enough with Fedora 13 yet to get it working. I've read the man pages, tried to search, but I can't seem to find a working answer,If I could get this one little inconvenience fixed, I'd be set... loving Fedora so far.
I am looking for a guide for Fedora 13 that tells me how to:
1. Create an encrypted partition on an an external USB hard drive
2. Tells me how to setup Fedora to ask me for the passphrase when I plug in the drive
3. Automounts the hard drive to a set location
The guide should deal with the situation that the computer can mount without declaring the external hard drive is not there.At present my attempt at mounting my Samsung Story USB2 hard drives does not meet criteria 2 and 3.
I want to mount a remote drive on bootup. I'm using FC14 and remote machine is FreeBSD. I've written a shell script to mount it. The script contains only one line: Code: mount 192.168.1.33:/home/user7 /media/mc33
I've to run this script from superuser mode to mount the file system(it works). So to mount it at bootup, I added the shell script to my PATH (/home/me/bin) and added it to Menu->System->Preferences->Startup Applications. Well this doesn't work because the root privileges are not present. I tried fixing it by giving root privileges to my shell script Code: #chmod +s mount-mc33 but it made no difference.
I just moved from ubuntu to fedora 14 and I'm having an issue with a portable USB hard drive. When the hard drive is connected at startup it mounts at /dev/sda and my other 3 internal hard drives are mounted at /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd; of course this is an issue with my FSTAB file since i mount some of the partitions in the first hard drive (/dev/sda) at some special points in my file system, so i need to restart my computer and unplug the USB hard drive to get things working, however when i was working with ubuntu this didn't happen. I need that the USB hard drive mounts at /dev/sdd at startup so my FSTAB could work.
I am basically mounting my portable hard drive (sdb1) and creating a bit image copy of sda on to the hard drive. What each line in the command is doing? e.g. what does ntfs-3g mean? what does the third line mean?
I recently installed Damn Small Linux using unetbootin. Booting Linux from unetbootin seems a lot like booting from a liveCD, so I'd like to mount my hard drive and see what I can do. Unfortunately it looks like Damn Small Linux has not mounted it automatically, and I'm having trouble finding my drive and mounting it from the /dev directory. There are several devices named /dev/*da* and I don't know which is my hard drive. My computer is an HP Mini netbook, so the drive is probably one of the new "solid state" drives if that affects anything.What can I do to find and mount my hard drive from unetbootin?
After inserting the drive into a usb port and run dmesg because the drive is not mounted all, I've the following added to the message log:
usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2 usb 5-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice usb 5-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0644, idProduct=0000 usb 5-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 usb 5-1: Product: TEACV3.0 code....
I have been running a computer under Windows XP for years, and recently it stopped booting unexpectedly. It tries to load windows, but partway though loading a BSOD flashes and it shuts down. To remedy this and hopefully fix this, my frined lent me some Knoppix CDs that I could boot from. He also lent me some external hard drives. I want to be able to access my files on my old hard drive.
Here's the problem: (in Knoppix 6) When I try to mount my main partition of my hard drive, which shows as sda2 (sda1 is an old recovery partition left over from when I ran vista), the following message pops up: "A job is pending on dev/sda2" A little later another error window pops up: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." I want to be able to mount my hard drive in Knoppix 6.
I have an external Samba network storage drive that I mount using 'mount -t cifs -o username=aaa,password=aaa //myserver /mnt/mountlocation', but I'm finding it to be a pain to enter that whole command every time I turn on that drive and connect it to my computer via the network. I could put that command in a script and run a simple script like 'mntdrive' that would run that command for me, but is there a way to have the drive 'pre-mounted' so that if it's available on the network it's mounted?
If I put the mount command in one of the startup scripts or in fstab, would it be available at the mount location when the drive is connected if it wasn't connected when the computer was first turned on? Or is mounting the drive manually, even if by running a script that does it for me, something I'll have to do every time I turn on that drive? Any creative ways around this? Would make things easier if it is possible.
I am trying to install a harddisk, which is already formatted as ext3, into my Qnap NAS box. The web interface of the NAS box shows, that the harddrive has been detected, but I am not able to mount any of its partitions.This is the output from fdisk -l:
