Thread: Making mounting of drive persistant.

    Default Re: Making mounting of drive persistant.

    Hi and thanks all for the advice. I understand the advice and will try with caution. My RAID is in hardware so drive shows just as /dev/sdb1 and doesn't show in RAID section of Yast. I have it mounted temporarily using mount command so it shows as mounted in YAST but even if I edit and OK etc. no change is made to /etc/fstab. Will unmount and try again and report back in due course.
    Thanks again,
    Budgie

    I think it is, but I don't know if the raid array identifier is correct.
    I use labels myself.

    Editing fstab and mounting partitions is really easy. Just make sure
    that it mounts correctly and do not reboot until it is: an incorrect
    fstab blocks boot.

    Make a backup copy of the file, edit it, try the mount. The mount
    command will tell you the errors if there are. If you can not get it,
    comment the offending line out.

    I would use a 3 for the passno, perhaps.

    Hi and thanks for the help. After all the advice to use Yast I worked out how to do it and all seems well. My proposed edit line of /etc/fstab was exactly correct but Yast added it at the end of the file. The passno is 2 BTW.

    Thanks again,
    Budgie2

    You can put the number you like. I'd use 3 because I use 1 for the root
    filesystem, 2 for the rest of partitions, and 3 for those partitions
    mounted under other partitions, etc.

    The risk is if you reboot before testing that it is right :-)
    Otherwise, pure routine.
