    Mount FreeBSD HD on Linux


    I have a FreeBSD Cpanel server. I plan to move to Linux.

    If i get OS reloaded on a second Hard Disk, will i able to mount the current FreeBSD HD on Linux and copy it ?

    If yes, let me know the command to mount FreeBSD HD on Linux.

    You will likely need to compile UFS into the kernel. I do not remember if its in there. If it was freebsd 5.x - 6.x you can use:

    mount -r -t ufs -o ufstype=ufs2 /dev/hdc1 /mnt

    Keep in mind, password files are different so you cant use them.

    It will be a readonly mount.
