  1. Re: Access an NFSv4 export as the server's root user (no_root_squash not working)

    fsid= is how NFS keeps separate exports ... er ... separate. I've only needed it when having the same location shared, but with different options. Any uniq number can be used, don't think they need...

    [xubuntu] Re: Mdadm array lost on Thunderbolt 3 drive

    The slowest part of the storage chain will be the limiting factor. I have 25-40 Gbps here between some systems, but that doesn't matter when the source and destination are on a 7200 rpm spinning...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Autofs working - but conflicting with /media/~user

    Sorry, but I don't understand the solution. Too many redirection levels. ;)


    sudo chmod 400 /media
    was the only thing needed. That stops all processes from having any access inside /media,...
  4. Re: Access an NFSv4 export as the server's root user (no_root_squash not working)

    My /etc/network/interface files migrated and are still being used on 18.04. Happy surprise.

    I don't think either btrfs or zfs are ready for the OS/boot partition. Snapshots aren't backups. They...

    If you have a chicken-egg problem with lshw not already existing, either of these commands should provide some network device information:

    Re: None Detected Error in KVM

    What are the major settings for the VM you are trying to install into? For example, a 32-bit VM can't accept a 64-bit OS. I'd expect a different error than "None detected.", but if there isn't a disk...

    [xubuntu] Re: Mdadm array lost on Thunderbolt 3 drive

    Just saying that you have a RAID0 and it is backed up nightly would have been sufficient for me. You'd be surprised at how many people think all RAID modes have protection .... and that backups are...
  9. Re: Access an NFSv4 export as the server's root user (no_root_squash not working)

    Sorry, I'm not any real help, as you'll see below. Just a few thoughts ...

    NFS shouldn't be used for any backups any more than CIFS should. There is a risk of malware (crypto-locker) making it...

    Re: USB 3.0 or USB 0.3?

    Likely a fake - with modified firmware to appear as 1TB, but probably really only 8GB.

    I stopped buying from online retail due to the fakes. Walking into a box store and buying usually ensures...

    Re: USB 3.0 or USB 0.3?

    USB is a bus. It provides a theoretical max throughput only. It is usually shared by multiple devices.
    Storage devices could be faster than usb2, but few were faster than usb3 until NVMe SSDs.

  12. [SOLVED] Re: Autofs working - but conflicting with /media/~user

    Gnome with gio/gvfs are the problem mounting automatically otsd autofs. I don't have a GUI on my plex system, so I've never seen the issue. Perhaps if the file manager wasn't running, gvfs/gio...

    Also, sudo is not needed with dmesg ... er ... yet. There have been some discussions about properly locking log files, so sometime in the next...

    that's really only possible for manually managed users - not so easy with daemon accounts, if that's your goal. Any accounts that need to work prior to networking being available can't really use...

    Today, nobody should be installing 16.04, as regular support for that release ends in April - 3 months from now.

    When ls doesn't work, that's a huge failure. Reseat the cables, run fsck, run SMART tests and reports (2 separate commands). SMART should show a bad cable or slowly failing storage, but not always....

    Bad options cause the entire line to be ignored in the fstab. Is x-systemd.after=network-online.target allowed?
