Cant Mount /dev/sdb1 In Webmin

Recommended Posts

Hello Team:

I need help with a drive problem - I try to format /dev/sdb as Linux native, and it looks good, but when I mount it, it says that its either the wrong fs type, or it may already mounted - I want to use this drive as additional space for other operations - can somone help me if I get a screenshot of webmin doing this??

It shows up in webmin as /dev/sdb1 when formatted, but I can't sucessfully mount this 33 gig drive

It always says:

"Failed to save mount : Mount failed :

mount: /dev/sdb1 already mounted or /work busy"

(/work being the directory I want to mount the drive on, but it seems that its already mounted: Where??)

Any help would be appreciated!!

Brian

However, there is a /dev/sdb/ in webmin that I cannot mount, and if its there already mounted, I am not sure where it is - that is what is confusing the heck outta me

I also can get this when mount fails:

Error

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Failed to save mount : Mount failed :

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,

missing codepage or helper program, or other error

In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try

dmesg | tail or so

soes anyone have any idea why I get this??

/dev/sdb1 is mounted on /users - I remember you said something about having the wrong fstype, so I used online instructions to make this work and chose to mkfs -t ext2 /dev/sdb1 - and after the fsck, it works well ;)

Thank god that we can manually do this from the command line - sometimes its easier to do it this way, but webmin is a lifesaver :)

Thanks for the second look and the assist!!!

I'm getting this error too: 

"Failed to save mount : Mount failed :

mount: /dev/sdb1 already mounted or /work busy"

 

I'm a bit of a noob and can't figure out after reading this thread what you did to fix it..
