View Full Version : [ubuntu] mount/fstab issue

September 1st, 2009, 04:11 AM
I added a 1TB hdd to my ubuntu server, created a partition and file system.
The new disk shows up as /dev/sdd1.
I then created a directory '/misc' where I want to permanently mount it.
When I do a 'mount /dev/sdd1 /misc' everything looks good, I can do a 'df' and it shows up, I can do a 'ls -l /misc' and it lists it. But when I add to /etc/fstab

UUID=bcf975f4-2cbb-4154-877f-64809032c118 /misc ext3 realtime 0 2

and do a 'mount -a' I get the following:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdd1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

What is wrong?
Filesystem was created by running 'mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sdd1'

Get ready to blush. It's a simple typo.

It should be 'relatime' instead of 'realtime'.

Happens to the best of us. :wink:
