I was testing something on my server trying to increase the number of inodes by creating new filesystem on one partition:
mkfs.ext3 /dev/hdb2 -N 100000000 -L /data
However after the mkfs.ext3 command I haven't been able to mount the /data as I could before like this:
I got this error message:
mount: no such partition found
BEFORE running mkfs.ext3 ... I could do mount and umount /data without any error statement like this:
However I figured out that after running mkfs.ext3 I CAN MOUNT /data manually like this:
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdb2 /data -> THIS WORKS perfectly fine
How can I now MAKE mount work AGAIN the same way as it worked before running mkfs.ext3 (without manual specifying of fs option and device option) ?
I HAVEN'T CHANGED a simple thing in /etc/fstab - NOT BEFORE NOR AFTER running mkfs.ext3:
this is the entry for /data partition:
LABEL=/data1 /data ext3 defaults 1 2
Does anyone now what the problem is ? I suppose after running mkfs.ext3 you have to do some changes in some config files but I dunno where and which
THANKS A LOT FOR ANY HELP!
