Mount a zfsmember disk
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 4, 2013
I would like to get some support about importing a zfs filesystem on Ubuntu Server (v14.04, Trusty). How do I import a zfs_member disk?
The story behind this question is the following: I am unfortunately the IT guy of my family. I say unfortunately because we're 6 in my family and that makes a lot of sensible data. I built a nice server on top of a LSI Megaraid SAS 8888elp card, on which I hooked 6x2TB hdd's. I configured them in Raid 6, did some testing on raid expansion and then thought about which OS to install. Since at the time I was not willing to use another hdd for the operating system, I went for freenas 8 (it is a freebsd-based server, working from a usb key). That is where the story went ugly. FreeNas's preferred filesystem is ZFS, so I formatted the raid disk as ZFS. It was pretty straightforward because the raid card showed the raid array as a big, 7.8 tb disk. -> I did not know at the time that ZFS on top of hardware raid is a bad thing to do. Now I d
Cannot mount hard disk: block count exceeds size of device bad partition table

I have one hard disk (call her HDA) that contains nothing but a single ext4 partition containing a backup of all my important data. Last night I did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.10 on my primary hard disk (call her HDB) and from there proceeded to upgrade directly to Ubuntu 11.04 upgrade. In 10.10, I was able to read HDA just fine. However after the upgrade, I can no longer mount this drive.

Unable to Mount Jaunty disk volumes . Maybe "User Privileges"?

I tried this yesterday and with today's update it's still "Unable to Mount xxxx Filesystem. Not Authorized" The "Palimpset Disk Utility" can see them, but also says "Error Mounting Device, Details: Permission Denied"
I have been able to read Karmic volumes in Jaunty, however.
[Script] Mount Wubi Disk from Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 12, 2009
Just posting this for people who are converting their wubi install to a dedicated partition with LVPM. Once done you may want to access your old setup in the event you modify something or whatever.
In the following examples you may need to edit some of the paths to match your system setup. The following scripts assume your Windows partition is on /dev/sda1.
Make a new text file:
sudo mkdir -p /media/WindowsXP
echo "Mounting NTFS Partition"
sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /media/WindowsXP
sudo mkdir -p /media/root.disk
echo "Mounting Wubi Disk"
sudo mount -o loop /media/WindowsXP/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /media/root.disk
echo "Done :)"
gksu nautilus /media/root.disk
exit 0 &
Save this as mountwubi.sh. Right click this new file, select Permissions tab and put a tick in the Execute box.
Create another text file:
echo "Unmounting Wubi Disk"
sudo umount /media/root.disk
Trying to Find and Mount Hard Disk
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 23, 2009
My friend just bought a new computer because his old one died. Unfortunately, the new one has a SATA motherboard, so his IDE hard disk doesn't work on it.
I offered to borrow it and get the files off for him. It had a Windows system on it, so I figure it's formatted in NTFS. I plugged it in and booted up, and Ubuntu doesn't see it.
I got a good idea how to use mount, but how do I find out whether or not the device is even being recognized?

can't mount cloned disk, even with changed UUID
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 5, 2012
I cloned my master disk (dual boot capable ,windows7 and unbuntu 12.04) to a slave via Acronis backup. Everything boots fine but I want the ability to boot from either root partition (sda5 or sdb5) on a specific drive . There are other similar posts but I find them short of answering some of my related questions.
Basically no matter what I do the df command always lists /dev/sda5 as the mounted root device. When I select a specific linux partition as listed by grub it always ends up with sda5 as the root partition. I was able to assign a different UUID to the sdb5 root partition. Yet, when I change fstab to mount it using this UUID it still boots up mounting sda5. I even changed all the UUID entries in /boot/grub/grub.cfg for sdb5 (by mounting to a non- root mount point) and to my bewilderment sda5 still came up as the mounted root partition. I did update-grub also.
Why does all this appear to be so illogical? Maybe I just have an old admin attitude about this b

Trying to mount single disk from a Raid1 Synology NAS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 13, 2013
Hi. I have an issue that have been discussed here a couple times, but with some specifics that differ. Here is the situation :
I have a Synology DS210J NAS, it's a 2 disks Linux based NAS that uses ext4 as it's filesystem (synology support page)
I have used 2 * 1TB drives for a Raid1 storage to keep my data safe.
Now, however due to some issues i want to access that data locally on my PC running kUbuntu 13.04 to try and recover some lost data.
I took one of the disks and plugged it inside a SATA to USB2 docking station (easier than opening my PC, removing a sata disk and putting this one in it's place).
The disk is visible, if i use fdik -l i get the following (sorry for french output of my command line)
mount virtualbox disk image file on loopback
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 25, 2009
I'm trying to mount a VirtualBox disk image file on loopback so I can browse the file system, etc. from within my host OS:
sudo mount testimage.vdi ~/.VirtualBox/HardDisks/test -t ext3 -o loop
But when I run that it says "wrong fs type." I presume that's because the testimage.vdi file isn't ext3, though the file system inside it is...
Am I misunderstanding this? Or do I just need to specify the right file system type, and if so, what?
