Ubuntu Servers :: Xp Drive Letter - Auto Mount The Server When On My Home Network
Jan 22, 2011
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 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 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 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 have a RH5 box and develop on Windows. I'm looking to mount the root dir of the RH machine just for ease of integration and automatic deployment to the linux box. I'm using WinSCP at the moment but that (from what I can find) only opens a window, which isnt accessible from eclipse.
The software: Ubuntu Server Edition 9.10.The wetware: A programmer doing his best (read: ignorant, shitty) as an ad-h.When I plug the USB thumb drive in, the install OS gives it a drive letter -- /dev/sdb -- and it pushes the original /dev/sdb down to /dev/sdc. The installation works without a hitch, and GRUB2 installs, dutifully pointing the root at /dev/sdc1 instead of /dev/sdb1.I let GRUB2 start normally ("drive not found"), holding the <shift> key to get to the "rescue>" prompt.From there, I issue "ls" to discover that GRUB can NOT see /dev/sdb, and I can tell that because what is showing up as (hd1) does NOT have three partitions as it should.GRUB2 sees a total of 16 drives, not 26, and one of the drives it sees is "fd0" (there is no floppy drive).Issuing commands like "set prefix=(hdx,y)" and "root=(hdx,y)" have no effect as, I think it's just pointing to the (reiserfs)content drives and this GRUB2 tells me "unknown filesystem".I did try them all in vain, hoping that maybe I'd find a kernel somewhere.I used the "rescue" mode of the Ubuntu installer (the USB thumb drive) to get to a root prompt.From there, I mounted /dev/sdc2 (the "shifted" /dev/sdb2) onto /mnt, I mounted /dev/sdc1 (the "shifted" /dev/sdb1) onto /mnt/boot,and then I chroot'ed to /mnt.I edited /boot/grub/grub.cfg, editing every instance of "root=(hd2,1)" to the appropriate UUID for the "real" /dev/sdb1. Then I issued update-grub2.It refused to work giving me an banal "no such partition" error or something like that.
We originally had this server functioning by putting / and /boot on the SS SanDisk, which caused no problems during installation because /dev/sda doesn't get shifted.We then figured it was a good idea to put our OS files on something with failover capability. And that started us down this crappy "shifting drive letter" path.Can I control which drive letter the USB thumb drive gets assigned during the install process?If I could make it be /dev/sdc then I wouldn't be facing this problem.An alternate solution would be to know the cryptic GRUB2 commands that I can issue from the command prompt post-install, pre-reboot.But I'm wondering if that will ultimately work at all considering that GRUB2 couldn't see /dev/sdb at all.
I am trying to set a Ubuntu home server to be a Network Attached Drive, a Media server, and Backup server.All of the computers (mostly windows 7 machines) can see and connect with the shared ubuntu folders, and read write and execute files into the folders. The problem is when programs are installed onto the server they operating systems cannot have "Full control", or change the owner of a file.
This is an issue when using the Ubuntu shared folders as remote hard drive locations because when Windows goes to run the files it keeps popping up with the "Open file - Security Warning" preventing files from being natively run.
share an external USB NTFS drive on my home network. The drive is attached to my desktop box running Debian Lenny. It's accessible on the desktop. I have a directory on the drive that I would like to make accessible to a Windows XP laptop. Read-only would be fine. The laptop has wireless access to the network.
I am tasked with setting up 3 out of the 6 servers and dividing up 500GB of space in the most efficient manner amongst the 3 servers. The space is in a pool which can be assigned to virtual drives. Each virtual drive can be assigned as disk0 or disk1 and so on to one or more servers. They'll be running CentOS.
On the second try I came up with this scheme: shared sda1 -- /boot (ext3) shared sda2 -- /home (ext3)
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 am using CentOS 5.5 OS. I already install ntfs-3g rpm, but I don't know the command to mount network NTFS drive. I also want to mount it on my fstab file, so whenever it reloads, it can automatically mount on the specific folder.
I'm attempting to run a DHCP server on my home network to enable PXE booting for ethernet clients, but I'm having quite a few issues getting it all up and running. I'm not entirely sure what is wrong, but I keep encountering errors in syslog as follows:
Feb 27 02:26:46 servnerr-1 dhcpd: Wrote 0 leases to leases file. Feb 27 02:26:46 servnerr-1 dhcpd: Feb 27 02:26:46 servnerr-1 dhcpd: No subnet declaration for eth0 (192.168.1.3).
Networking is not exactly my strong suit, but I would like to get this up and running if at all possible.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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've installed the Ubuntu 10.04 Server onto a PPC G4 Mac just for the experience of setting up a server. During the installation process Ubuntu couldn't auto-configure my DHCP Network. I'm using the airport card on a wireless network. How can I manually configure the network once Ubuntu is installed.
I've a few group shares setup with samba and a PDC (using windows 7 clients) and the home directory for each user gets mounted automatically. I've configured group shares and only members of the respective group have access to them, but my question is how do I tell samba to automount group shares based on the user group?
I run a headless Ubuntu 8.04 server, which acts as a web, email and file server. I am sticking with 8.04 as it is a LTS release and will upgrade to the next LTS when it is released.
I have two external USB drives, that I need to mount at boot. I have been using /etc/fstab up until now, with the following entries:
However, as I gather from doing searches is quite common, occasionally I get an error during boot (causing the system to drop to a recovery shell) because the USB drives take time to wake up and the system hasn't found them by the time it reads /etc/fstab.
From doing searches, it seems there is nothing you can do to fstab to fix this, so you need to mount them using an rc.local script instead, using:
The problem is, as I have two USB drives, their /dev/sdxx location changes between boots. I thus want to use UUID codes as I do in fstab, however I haven't found anything about this.
Does anyone know how I can use the mount command and UUID to mount a drive in rc.local and what options I have to use the mount the drive with the same options that I am using in my fstab entry? Obvisouly, I can't refer back to fstab using the mount command, because then I will still get the boot error issue if they are listed in fstab. And there is no space internally for the USB drives as there is already two internal 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:
