I am having difficulty auto-mounting my newly created LVG. I tried adding the following line to /etc/fstab:
/dev/vgBackup/lvBackup /home/stuart/volume_backup ext3 defaults 0 1
I also tried swapping the /dev/vgBackup/lvBackup with something similar to
based on the id that came up when I manually mounted the drive from nautilus by clicking on the volume (it showed up in /media).
Unfortunately, with both cases, I get a bootup message telling me that mounting fails and I have to press S to skip.
Manually mounting the drive from the CLI with:
sudo mount /dev/vgBackup/lvBackup /home/stuart/volume_backup
Perhaps fstab is the wrong tool to use? Ideally the drive should be available to write to for the stuart user instead of root.
- The drive currently uses the ext3 filesystem
- 3.5TB in size.
- consists of a 3TB and a 500G physical drives
