Thread: Mount problem

  1. #1

    Question Mount problem

    For some reason our second drive was unmount on server. I have no idea why it happend. Anyway we add it again.

    1. I have added this line into /etc/fstab
    /dev/hdb1 /backup ext3 defaults 1 0

    2. Then typed:
    # mount -a

    Everything was fine, 'df -h' shows that it was mounted succeful.

    But! After reboot mount fails. '/backup' disappeared from partition list.

    Please help I'm tired to fight with this server...

    Check your mtab file (/etc/mtab).
    Is the hard-drive in there? If not add it and try a reboot.

    You mounted it as ext3 in the first post but it says ext2 in your mtab. What format is it? That may be the problem.
    Also, you should check your logs, there should be some error message there.

    Here is an easy way to do it:
    1) enter:

    That sould bring back the boot messages. There should be something about hdb and/or hdb1 there. Check what it says. (if its too long: dmesg | grep 'hdb*')

    2) check your logs.
    Dont know how? Try this (don't do it if the server is under high load!)
    grep -R 'hdb' /var/log/*
    grep -R 'hdb1' /var/log/*

    Should be some message there. Check what it says and correct the issue.
