Ubuntu Installation :: On The Secondary Hard Drive Without Touching Any Of The Data

May 26, 2011

I've read the official documentation regarding hard drives and partitions. My pc has two hard drives. a 160gb primary hard drive with windows 7 a 1.5 tb secondary hard drive with about 80gb of free space I would like to know whether I can install ubuntu on the secondary hard drive, without touching any of the data present on that drive. From my limited understanding of storage, files are written all over hard drives during copy, move etc... Is the ubuntu partition manager smart enough not to overwrite any files during installation? Will I get a warning if there is a risk of any data loss on the secondary hard drive? I cannot backup any of the data on the secondary hard drive due to all my external drives currently being full.

General :: Accessing Secondary Hard Drive With Knoppix

Apr 5, 2011

I am working on a computer that the hard drive crashed. Inititially they had a virus, reloaded windows, and had the computer up and running. When downloading software it crashed and will not boot. I have tried all the numerous routine fixes with no success including using the repair discs. The repair discs no longer work and they are unable to get a second set. As a last resort I am able to access the hard drive when booting from Knoppix from a CD. There are a couple things I would like to try from Knoppix, but do not know if it is possible. First, Is it possible to load the boot files from knoppix? Second, can you roll back the drivers from knoppix?

OpenSUSE :: Added Second Hard Drive Now Can't Chown Or Chmod

Mar 29, 2010

I occasionally get into areas in Linux where I get my own ignorance demonstrated....System is a core quad running OpenSuse 11.2 64 bit on a LAN at home. I added a 750 GB SATA drive with the idea of putting all media on the drive i.e.music primarily plus a few movies and making the data sharable by anyone across the LAN i.e. the computer in the living room with an audio line to the stereo. My room mate is strictly a Windoze user so I figured if she wanted stuff on her machine as well then format the new drive with NTFS which I did using GPartd. I then set the drive to mount as /storage under root.

I loaded the music library &c and although I can play music from my user account on this machine I can not add music or videos or anything else except as root. I dont want to have to change to /root to do this. I attempted a chmod tonight as su from a terminal then in the root GUI using dolphin and resetting the permissions under properties and nothing changes. The drive appears in the filesystem as /storage with ownership as root. The permissions are

drwxr-xr-x 1 root users 4096 2010-03-27 22:55 storage

trying to chmod as root has no effect at all. I would like to be able to add content from any machine on the LAN plus be able to play a movie or video as well as music (I assume this would need the execute permission) but chmod -R 777 storage has no effect. Neither does cd'ing to the directory and trying to change ownership or permissions on the individual files or directories on the drive.Command line as su or as root from that gui, no difference. I do a

chmod g+w,o+rw storage

and the command appears to execute.However I ls -l and find the permissions unchanged. I obviously have or am doing something wrong, possibly in the way I set the drive up in the first place.

Ubuntu :: Damaged Hard Drive And Interrupted Update - Message Appears When Run Command Is Added Then Freezes

Apr 10, 2010

A section of the hard drive on my laptop is damaged but the laptop has genearlly been running fine as it seems to very rarely touch that section (once every few months). However, when installing some updates the computer has hit that section which means it becomes unresponsive and makes a nasty clunking sound every 10s or so. Because of this I've had to abort the update but now whenever I try to run 'dpkg --configure -a' to sort out the problem caused by the interrupted update I get the same freezing up and clunking. The message that appears when I run the command is adding extension /usr/lib/openoffice/basis3.0/program/mailmerge.py... and then it freezes.

Ubuntu Servers :: Add Second Hard Drive As /var/www/

Jun 16, 2010

I've recently moved from Fedora 7 to Ubuntu Server 9.10. This server has been in operation for quite a few years, and currently has two 110 GB IDE hard drives in one volume group...I think they are both mounted at /.

What I want to do is the following:

1. Have the system files on the IDE volume group of /

2. Add a 2TB SATA drive, mounting at at /var/www/ I also want this partition to be extendable, if I want to add a second 2 TB SATA drive, to be "Volumed"?? with this one

3. Add another IDE HDD, mounting at /var/log

I remember I used (I think it was GParted...a GUI when I added the second IDE drive a couple years ago), but now I'm in a Terminal-only world. After I install the hard drives, what process would I need to follow to accomplish my above listed tasks?

Ubuntu Servers :: Adding A New Hard Drive With XFS?

Apr 8, 2010

I need some help on this one. I added an second internal hard drive to my file server, a 500GB WD. I want to use this drive as the primary storage drive for my file server, and I want to format it with XFS. I've found some guides showing me how to add hard drives, but they didn't really fit what I want to do. When I run fdisk -l this is what I get

Code:

Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0001af4f

Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.10 - New Hard Drive Not Found

Mar 11, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.10 running on a HP Proliant DL380. The Server has 1 SCSI disk install which runs the Ubuntu OS. I recently added a new SCSI drive to the system (hot swap)
Run fdisk -ls
But it does not show the device.

I've also run
Code:
sudo rescan-scsi-bus.sh -w -l
which returned

Code:
0 new device(s) found.
0 device(s) removed.
I've have 4 other scsi bays which have the same result. I need to be able to see the drive before I can even mount/format.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting External Usb Hard Drive?

Jun 19, 2011

I have attached a 1.5 TB external hard drive to my new Ubuntu server. I mount it in /media/external. I used sudo mount /dev/sdx# /media/external but sdx# keeps changing. I added a line to fstab to mount it permanently but after couple of our it unmounts itself and /media/external is empty. It is in vfat format but webmin shows it as ntfs.

Quote:
cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' 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).

Ubuntu Servers :: Second Hard Drive (sdb1) Is Not Automatically Mounted?

Mar 4, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit.

For some reason, the second hard drive (sdb1) is not automatically mounted:

rick@rab-1:/mnt$ sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 500.0 GB, 499989348352 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60786 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000c17f6

[Code]....

Before I installed Ubuntu, I installed the RAID software to handle 4 500 GB hard drives - so there are supposed to be two mirrored drives. I'm not an expert in using RAID. I'm assuming it is correctly configured. I only "see" two drives. sda has Ubuntu etc. How can I get sdb1 mounted? I've tried using the palimpsest program but I'm afraid I screw it up. Do I need to re-format sdb1?

Ubuntu Servers :: Windows XP Disc Wouldn't Find Sata Hard Drive

Apr 10, 2011

I'm trying to get my work's infrastructure built at home before I go up there and show the boss. It is as follows: VMware esxi installed on the server with:

Windows server 2008
Ubuntu 10.04 server

I've got VMware installed. And I have spent the past 7 hours trying to figure out how to manage it. I found out that vsphere has not nor will ever be supported for Linux; which was my first problem.

Second Problem So I had to dig around for a spare Windows 7 dvd. To my UN-surprise it blue screened before it even got to the Windows installer.

Third Problem So I dug around for my Windows XP disc. Wouldn't find my sata hard drive and I wasn't about to dig around for a floppy drive and disk, in order to install it.

Fourth Problem I remembered that I had a dual boot of Windows 7 downstairs and proceeded to download and install vsphere. It wouldn't install because of some updates that needed to be installed. I installed them and got vsphere installed as well. However upon connecting to my vmware esxi, there was yet another error that had to do with some update. I found out that the error had been existent since 2009 and for some reason NO ONE at VMware has fixed it....

Ubuntu Servers :: Crashed - None Of The Sites Were Responding - Sounded Like It Was Thrashing The Hard Drive

Aug 2, 2011

I have a ubuntu 11.04 LAMP server at home.

Its runnign a few small sites on a drupal CMS.

This morning I found none of the sites were responding. The server itself sounded like it was thrashing the hard drive.

It wasnt responding to the FTP client or SSH connections. Web pages just sat there like they were loading very slowly but never actually loaded.

How can I find out what went wrong. I dont have a massive amount of experience with linux, particularly the server variant.

Its worried me a little that the drupal report shows several page not found errors like someone (a bot maybe) was trying to see what php setup files they could access.

Ubuntu :: Automounting A Specific Partition On Secondary Drive

May 29, 2010

I'm using rsync and crontab to do automatic backups from my /home partition on /dev/sda to my backup drive /dev/sdb3. The backup partition is ext4.

But the backup partition (sdb3) is obviously on a secondary drive, and I want to automount it when I log in. I read that you have to edit /etc/fstab to do this, but I'm not familiar with the process and can't find clear enough instructions, so I was wondering if someone could give me the command I need and maybe explain how it works?

Ubuntu :: Install /home On Secondary Ext3 Drive

Sep 4, 2010

I'm running lucid.

I want to unmount the current /home from sda7 and mount it to sdb1

I had a look at system -> drives management but just was able to mount the secondary drive sdb1 as "DataDrive"

I had a look at /etc/fstab. This doesn't show the recently mounted sda7 "DataDrive"

So now I'm somewhat lost on how to achieve the goal

>> What ist the correct way to do it?

Scenario 1. Copy all contents of /home to the new drive and then switch the /home mount point

Scenario 2. Switch the mount point of /home from sda7 to sdb1 and cp the contents afterwards

>> How do I unmount /home from sda7 and mount it back to the sdb1 (ext3) when lucid doesn't use fstab (does it?) and I don't know where the drives manager stores it's information.

(Just had the idea that I need to use a live cd for not to lock the system drives (sdaN) )

For sure there is a man page or a how to somewhere i didn't just find >> A link to such information might be sufficient
