I have a server running OpenSUSE 12.1 I also have an iSCSI array attached that is used for primary backup, and this mounts as /media/Drobo1. I have backup software running on both this system and several networked workstations that automatically back up to this location.
When I start up, my backup software tries to back up before the iSCSI drive is up, and creates a new Drobo1 folder in /media. When the iSCSI array mounts it creates a new name, such as Drobo1_1 and the backups go to the newly-created Drobo1 folder instead. At this point I must manually shut down the backups, unmount the array, delete the newly-created Drobo1 folder, then remount the array and restart the backups.
Oh, BTW, when I upgraded from 11.4 to 12.1, eth1, the iSCSI connection, somehow became br0, a bridge connection.
Does anyone know how I can either prevent a new folder from being created in /media before the array is mounted, or change the load order as follows:
- Load br0 (or eth1 if I have to change it back). This is the connection for the iSCSI array.
- Load the iSCSI client.
3, Load eth0.
- Load the server instance of the backup software.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Any help would be appreciated.
