    Question Samba only lists primary drive?

    I setup a ubuntu server machine within my home to learn the basics of linux server management. I was able to successfully get samba running on my home network but only have access to the "primary" bootable hdd on my linux server box... I have 3 drives inside let me know if you see my problem..... I think my other drives are not mounting properly so here is my f disk and fstab:

    sudo fdisk -l

    Thanks for any advice you can provide. This is a learning experience and I appreciate any advice or recommended reading/watching material .-AT

    Re: Samba only lists primary drive?

    Hmm, it looks to me like you have them all set up to use LVM. If you run 'df -h' (without the quotes), does the size for your root volume make sense? Is it the size of all of your disks combined?

    Recommended reading material? Beginner's Guide to LVM. LVM is kinda complicated to understand and make work!

    Re: Samba only lists primary drive?

    In addition to the above command, please give the output of:

    Code:
    sudo mount
    Code:
    sudo blkid
    Code:
    vgdisplay
    Code:
    pvdisplay
    When you installed/setup LVM, where did you expect/setup the additional drives to be mounted?
    Nothing is ever easy, but if it is difficult you must be doing it wrong.

    Correct.

    Now would be a good time to describe what your intentions are and/or how you thought things were setup during the install.
    How would you like to use/mount the additional drives?

    I would like to allocate all hdd space to my samba server for storage use. Ext4 is fine. I am not sure how to mount the drives and have smb recognize them.

    Re: Samba only lists primary drive?

    Well, I was hoping for a more descriptive response.

    Do you want to use LVM?
    Do you want to use a single mount point or multiple mount points.

    When you installed the OS, did you assign the disks to a mount point?

    Where would you like to mount the additional drives?

    Why do you have swap defined twice?

    According to your /etc/fstab/ swap is actually on /dev/sdb5 and /dev/mapper/tomaino--server--vg-swap_1 aka "/dev/sdc5" which is part of LVM.
    You created swap partitions on all of your disks, which is not typical.

    What how-to were you following?

    Sorry for the limited description. A more detailed description is beyond my current knowledge level. I do not have any need to setup LVM and would prefer a single mount point. I "think" i assigned a mount point during the ubuntu server install, but I had to reinstall "few" times (probably where the double swap came from). I wasn't really following any "how to" i am sure you can tell... should to do a fresh reinstall with a real how to? I was hoping i could reformat a few drives and edit the fstab and everything would work, but maybe i am a wishful thinker "-AT
