    Exclamation Adding new HDD nightmare

    Hello all. I am having a hell of a time trying to get the new HDD to auto-start on boot. It is formatted EXT4 and the label is called "Store". I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

    Here is the list of my mtab and fstab:

    mtab

    /dev/sdb1 / ext4 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
    proc /proc proc rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    none /sys/fs/fuse/connections fusectl rw 0 0
    none /sys/kernel/debug debugfs rw 0 0
    none /sys/kernel/security securityfs rw 0 0
    udev /dev devtmpfs rw,mode=0755 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=0620 0 0
    tmpfs /run tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,size=10%,mode=0755 0 0
    none /run/lock tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=5242880 0 0
    none /run/shm tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    /dev/sdb1 /media/Store ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks 0 0
    gvfs-fuse-daemon /home/steff/.gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev,user=steff 0 0
    gvfs-fuse-daemon /root/.gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    /dev/sdc1 /media/Store_ ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks 0 0

    fstab

    /dev/sdb1 / ext4 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
    proc /proc proc rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    none /sys/fs/fuse/connections fusectl rw 0 0
    none /sys/kernel/debug debugfs rw 0 0
    none /sys/kernel/security securityfs rw 0 0
    udev /dev devtmpfs rw,mode=0755 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=0620 0 0
    tmpfs /run tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,size=10%,mode=0755 0 0
    none /run/lock tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=5242880 0 0
    none /run/shm tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    /dev/sdb1 /media/Store ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks 0 0
    gvfs-fuse-daemon /home/steff/.gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev,user=steff 0 0
    gvfs-fuse-daemon /root/.gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    /dev/sdc1 /media/Store_ ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks 0 0

    I can only mount it using root.

    The second request is; i have a USB section on-board and i would like it to be non accessible on boot.

    The syntax for achieving both of the problems would be most appreciative as well.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Adding new HDD nightmare

    Are you certain those two are your fstab and mtab files?

    What do you mean by "trying to get the HDD to autostart at boot"; I presume you just want it to automount with read/write permissions?

    I have never seen anything like that before as /etc/fstab; yours looks exactly the same as mtasb or more like the output of the command mount, so let's really see what your fstab is by showing us the output of
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab
    and also
    Code:
    sudo blkid -c /dev/null
    We can then help you with the problem.

    Re: Adding new HDD nightmare

    Thanks for your reply ajgreeny. Here is the result of your first request:

    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
    # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
    UUID=ea2cd6cf-1557-4480-a226-2798bd274c8c / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
    # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
    UUID=c5d7b8fa-bf56-4f83-b6d2-3b1f369d6bc3 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/sdb1 /media/Store ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks 0 0

    Here is the reuult of your second request:

    /dev/sda1: UUID="ea2cd6cf-1557-4480-a226-2798bd274c8c" TYPE="ext4"
    /dev/sda5: UUID="c5d7b8fa-bf56-4f83-b6d2-3b1f369d6bc3" TYPE="swap"
    /dev/sdb1: LABEL="Store" UUID="c8b592b0-7ec8-466c-b750-fda9ba74797e" TYPE="ext4"
    /dev/sdc1: LABEL="USB SMI" UUID="c8a822bb-c4df-4386-b71a-8724056e2232" TYPE="ext3"

    I hope this helps. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Adding new HDD nightmare

    hello ahallubuntu. Thank you for your reply. I opted for this configuration: UUID=c8b592b0-7ec8-466c-b750-fda9ba74797e /Store ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks 0 0 and ran sudo mount -a and had no errors in the fstap. However, i still need to mount it with root. Also, it still does not autoboot with the operating system. Please advise. Thanks in advance.

    Ok. After reboot the "df" is as follows:

    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sdb1 74891424 4520916 66566196 7% /
    udev 1007020 4 1007016 1% /dev

    /dev/sdb1 74891424 4520916 66566196 7% /media/Store
    /dev/sda1 244416 137501 94295 60% /media/USB SMI

    The /etc/mtab is as follows:

    /dev/sdb1 / ext4 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
    proc /proc proc rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0

    gvfs-fuse-daemon /root/.gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev 0 0

    I hope this helps. Thanks in advance.
