Server sleep issues


Hello,

I've recently built a home server by updating my old gaming PC and adding a second drive. I used fstab to mount the second drive and everything has been working great.

I only need the server to work when I'm home and awake so I set it up to sleep and wake on lan. Now when the PC wakes up the second drive is not mounted anymore.

Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

Thanks
BTW I'm using Xubuntu.

Hi,

what line did you put in your /etc/fstab for this disk?

I added the line below at the end:

/dev/sdb1 /mnt/content ext4 defaults 0 0

Hi,

that looks to me like it should mount automatically on boot. The only thing I would suggest to change is the last "0" to "2" (see "The sixth field" section in the fstab man page).

Does it mount if you run the following:
Code:
mount -a
as root? If not are there any error messages? And does it mount if you run:
Code:
mount /mnt/content
as root? Any error messages?

Also, did you check the logs in /var/log/ for clues?

Code:
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/content ext4 defaults,auto 0 0
You have to set auto option to fstab so that mount -a automatically mounts it.

From the fstab man page
Code:
             defaults
                     use  default  options: rw, suid, dev, exec, auto, nouser,
                     and async.
So auto does not need need to be explicitly listed.

I wonder now if I've missunderstood the OP: is the machine actually being shut down? Or suspended to ram or disk?

What distribution / version are you running? Are you running a desktop?

Also is the drive internal or external i.e PATA, SATA, or USB?
