    Re: Using Ubuntu to host 9660 images for Windows Clients - Help!

    The ISOs are in /home/oxfdev/ISO
    Once mounted they are in /home/oxfdev/IMAGES

    I have tried mounting them to /mnt/IMAGES/imagename


    I'm putting them in a subfolder as I intend to share the subfolder with around 15 mounted in total

    ---

    Just going to see if using fstab to automatically mount them changes anything: this thread implys there is a "user can mount" option

    OK it doesn't like me automounting in fstab... it keeps hanging asking me to skip.

    I added the line:
    /home/oxfdev/ISO/bigabc.iso /home/oxfdev/IMAGES/BIGABC udf,iso9660 user,loop 0 0


    I separated with a single space and with a single tab; neither worked... is there something wrong with my syntax



    Thanks

    Code:
    sudo mount /home/oxfdev/ISO/bigabc.iso /home/oxfdev/IMAGES -t iso9660 -o loop
    I know you are using gMount to mount the images but it might be messing you up.

    I'm not entirely sure what the line should be but your line doesn't look right...shouldn't you at least specify the mount command?

    I'll continue to add information because it might be relevant....

    Mounting the images to /media/BIGABC still gave me "Permission Denied" locally


    fstab continued to not like mounting the images automatically. I added some more options dev,exec,suid



    Thanks again!

    Sorry I may not have been clear that was the line I added to fstab... it seemed to follow the idea in the documentation: LINK and this thread about auto mounting images: LINK


    Its unlikely to make a difference but I'm making the images on a Windows machine... ISO Master is a bit odd if your making an ISO out of a disk (adding folders rather than specifying the source)


    Gracias

    Well if you think that Windows is messing you up try remaking the images in Ubuntu

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install isomaster
    It has a GUI as the windows version

    Or you can install a totally different CLI program

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ccd2iso


    Syntax would be

    Code:
    ccd2iso inputfile.iso outputfile.img

    Ha! Solved!

    The main culprit here is the images that ISOMaster was creating...

    All I have done is used an image made on my Windows machine and it mounts correctly (CLI or GMount) and it share fine (accessible locally and from a windows client)

    It even mounted first time in fstab



    Thanks to Caboose885 and pricetech


    BONUS QUESTION: Does anyone know the maximum amount of iso9660 images you can mount at any one time?

    I'm guessing it would be as many as you want? I don't see anything online about a maximum. I think it would be based on how powerful your computer is.

    Do you know the answer?

    When looking into making a CD Server I'm sure I read somewhere that there is a limit to the number of file systems Linux can mount at one time... Somewhere around 20...

    It wasn't specifically 9660 file systems, just file systems in general...

    Well you could always copy the image contents and save them to the hard drive if you ever hit the max amount. It would probably end up being faster because the OS wouldn't have to keep all the images mounted all the time. It would end up being normal files on the system.
