Please show more computer evidence of what you are telling. Like fstab listings, partition tales and more you say you have, but you do not show.
what evidence do you need? and on the same note why do I need to “show any evidence”? and evidence of what exactly ? I am not accusing anyone of anything. I am asking a question that I can not find a solution for.
I am giving a lot of information that should be enough to give a suggestion or at least
point me to the right direction. at the moment I do not have access to the machine to give a print out of fstab.
as for partition tables :
I have 5 HDD in the system. I originally planed to have a bootable BTRFS RAID1 configuration but it did not worked as I expected so scraped the plan
here is my hardware and partitioning :
SYSTEM DRIVES : split root"/" and “/home” partitions among 2 drives
sda - 1TB WD drive
|-> sda1 1TB BTRFS label <ROOT> mountpoint “/”
sdb - 1TB WD drive
|-> sdb1 1TB BTRFS label <HOME> mountpoint “/home”
sdc 2TB hitachi drive
|-> sdc1 2TB BTRFS label<DATA1> mountpoint “/DATASTORE1”
– this drives are setup from CLI as a BTRFS multidevice volume on raw devices no partitions defined, and appear empty from Yast/partitioner (Yast does not support multidevice BTRFS setup. single drive only). however “btrfs fi show” returns a 3TB BTRFS volume in RAID1 configration for Data and MetaData
sdd - 3TB WD drive
sde - 3TB WD drive
code used to setup the 3TB
mkfs.btrfs -m raid1 -d raid1 label MEDIA1 /dev/sdd /dev/sde
this creates a single volume spread across 2 drives.
I have seen many examples where /media is used to create a mountpoints for drives that need to be mounted on startup by the system. I do not want to mount this manually I want to set it up and forget it untl I need to add more drives or such.
I thought that “/mnt” was used for temporary mounting of devices and/or file systems not for permanent mounts.
am I wrong in that assumptions?
I am building a file server / VM server
all data volumes, and the plan is to have at least 3 main data stores, will be shared via Samba to be accessible to any device on the network and any VM that needs it. (plan to build out a owncloud VM to share things over the Internet. maybe even use that as main share hub for everything.)
so I want to automount all data volumes that I plan to be shareable on start up so samba can find them and present it as shares.
can you suggest something constructive for this scenario?
