Server :: Mounting And Backingup Files To A Usb Drive In Debian?

Jun 15, 2011

I have a question?! have a linux server which was administered by my good friend who has passed away and I have been asked to take over. the server has debian installed (installed oct 2008 and would have been the latest version) and I am looking to backup the smb shares to a external usb disc. I have formatted and mounted the disc and found a script he wrote to automate the backup run from a cron tab. Looking through the script the mount commands dont look quite right to me particulary as the owner will swap drives every day. everything else appears to be working fine! the command to mount in the script is'

mount /mnt/usb
and unmount;
unmount /mnt/usb
I think it should be' mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb
and to unmount . umount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb

am I talking nonsense here or I on the right track?

Ubuntu :: Mounting New Drive With Media Files?

Feb 2, 2011

I don't know anything about Unbuntu I installed it because I had a virus and I didn't have a copy of windows. I have an extra HD with lots of media on it. At first it seemed to show up but then it disappeared. I did the sudo commands and the disk shows up as sdb. I have no idea what I am doing or what to do and all the guides keep talking about adding partitions and programs I have to dl from the net. This is a stand alone computer with no net connection.

General :: Mounting USB Drive At Boot - Debian

Mar 6, 2011

I need to mount a USB drive at boot up. I tried this entry in fstab:

Code:
LABEL=/Root-FS /Root-FS auto defaults,auto,user 1 0
But that did not do it. If I do a 'mount -a', that works.

This is for an embedded Debian system.

Server :: Mounting Remote (NFS) Drive - Adding To Fstab

Oct 25, 2010

From a Fedora 9 server (I think!) I'm trying to mount an nfs drive from a Mac Server. You see, a couple weeks back this was working fine but now there seems to be a problem. I've tried using the mount command and found the following line in the /etc/fstab doc...

Code:
<IP ADDRESS>:/remote/nfs/directory /directory/to/mount/on nfs defaults 0 0
It was commented so I uncommented it, hoping this would be a quick and easy resolution =). Anyway, it didn't work and when I run mount -av the server timesout. So on the Mac Server, I enabled Samba sharing preferences and tried adding this to fstab,

Code:
<IP ADDRESS>:/remote/nfs/directory /directory/to/mount/on cifs username=name,password=password 0 0
When I run mount -a it hangs. I guess I'm doing everything totally wrong. I can SSH into the MAC Server and use tar, rsync etc with no problem. But I really need this drive to mount as it once use to. It's been suggested to me that the NFS or networking module on the Linux box might be broken.

Debian Hardware :: External Hard Drive Not Registering / Mounting

May 22, 2014

My external hard drive (about 2 years old) won't mount. It wouldn't mount on Windows either. Other external hard drives (sdb1) mount perfectly.

I am wondering is there a Linux way of getting the hard drive to work again? The disc spins up so it's not a mechanical failure. I'm guessing here but is there a way of flashing firmware onto the external HD if that might be the problem?

(Seagate 2TB ST320005EXD101-RK)

Code: Select all# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation

Server :: Mounting Nfs Files Locally - RPC Error - Program Not Registered

Jan 21, 2010

First of all, in whether I have interpreted this correctly: [url]

Where we want all users to be able to restore backups. This involves nfs exporting and mounting the backup directory ON THE SAME MACHINE, no...?

I have been trying to fix this all day, and can't figure out why its not working.

All my /etc/fstab /etc/exports /etc/hosts.allow /etc/hosts.deny must be correct as the file mounts (after booting, but NOT ON booting) with:

All the necessary (I think) services are starting on boot:

On bootup I receive the error:

Code:

I have other filesystems mounted from another server which all mount fine. Its just this one.

Server :: Mounting Drive Bad Superblock Error Wrong Fs Type, Bad Option, Bad Superblock On /dev/sda1?

Jun 16, 2010

I have a x64 OpenSUSE server with two hard drivers installed. The first one is used for the / and /home partitions and the other is for backups. Ironically enough it is the backup hard drive I am having trouble with. I was having trouble writting to the drive and unmounted it to preform a fchsk, however now when ever I try to mount it I get the following error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Does anyone know who I can repair the drive and retrive data?

Debian Configuration :: NFS Shares In Fstab - Error: Mount.nfs4: Access Denied By Server While Mounting (null)

Debian :: Flash Drive With Windows Files Not Showing In PCManFM

Feb 20, 2015

So I made a text file on a windows machine and brought it home on a flashdrive. When I opened it in PCMan File manager it did not show, but executing ls in a terminal shows the text file just fine. It is the only one that appears to be missing in PCManfm. I've had a similar problem going the other direction (Linux to Windows, but with pdfs) many months ago. here is ls -l

Code: Select all/media/FE32-A2F6/Translation/Kevin$ ls -l

Server :: RHEL Auto Delete Files With Full Hard Drive

Jul 13, 2010

I experienced a full hard drive yesterday due to a massive error_log. We took care of the errors, but later found out we were missing files, including a MySQL database table. Having a shopping cart and ecommerce stuff on the site, we found that some of those files were missing, too.Does RHEL 5 have some sort of feature for automatically deleting files when the partition is full? If it does, I want to turn it off.

Fedora :: Mounting A Hard Drive That Already Has An OS

Dec 18, 2009

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.

Fedora :: Mounting 2nd Drive At Boot?

Jul 30, 2010

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 :

Code:

/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

Fedora Installation :: Not Mounting Second Drive?

Jun 18, 2011

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?

Ubuntu :: USB Flash Drive Not Mounting?

Feb 25, 2010

My USB flash drive has stopped working with Ubuntu.

Normally when I remove it I unmount it first, but the last time I just unplugged it. After I unplugged it, it started not working.

When I put it in a windows machine, it shows up as drive E: but says "no disk" when I try to access it.

In my Ubuntu machine I can see it as USBDrive under Places > Computer, but it's unmounted. When I click mount nothing happens.

Ubuntu :: Updated To 10.04 - Mounting Ext Drive And Usb?

Apr 30, 2010

I just updated to 10.04 from the previous version and I'm encountering two main problems: First, on boot, after grub, I get the following message: Quote:"Disk drive for /hdba/sda6 is not ready yet or not present" "Continue to wait, or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery" It won't go past that (I've waited 30 min) If I press S then I get tis other message but it skips after a few seconds:

Quote: "Disk drive for /hdba/sda7 is not ready yet or not present" "Continue to wait, or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery" If I press S then I have an ALMOST working system. You see: I have an external USB hard drive, shared between XP and Ubuntu with all my files in it, and it won't mount. It's a simpletech and it was working just before the update and it loads, mounts and unmounts perfectly on windows and on another laptop I've got running crunchbang!. I can see the disk in "Media" but says I have not enough permissions to see its contents.

Ubuntu :: GRUB2 Not Mounting Drive?

Jun 10, 2010

I'm having a problem on startup where GRUB seems to time out attempting to mount my main drive. Here is the error it gives me:

Quote:

Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:

-Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
-Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)

ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/b1517926-aba4-47d1-81f0-42ca5dd36257 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

I am given a initramfs shell. Sometimes waiting a couple of minutes and then typing 'exit' works. However, I've noticed if I do this:

Code:
(initramfs) mount /dev/disk/by-uuid/b1517926-aba4-47d1-81f0-42ca5dd36257 /root
(initramfs) exit

my laptop will boot.

I'm really not sure what the issue is, or how to even start to resolve it.. I'm not sure what the issue is, since

For example HD1 is connected to SATA port1 on my motherboard HD2 is connected to SATA port2 on my motherboard all the way to HD5 connected to Sata port5 on the motherboard. I would like port1 to always map to /dev/sda port2 -> /dev/sdb port3 -> /dev/sdc etc until port5 -> /dev/sde as of right now every time I reboot I get different mappings like port1 -> /dev/sdc port2 -> /dev/sda next reboot I get different mappings again.

General :: Mounting Drive At Startup

Oct 8, 2010

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.
