Unable to mount a drive


Hi All

I am running Redhat 5.2 64 Bit,Kernel version
2.6.18-238.12.1.el5

And I'm having problems mounting one of the drives

[root@test /]# mount -a
mount: block device /dev/sdu is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdu,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so


[root@test /]# dmesg | grep sd
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev sdu.
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev sdu.
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev sdu.

Please assist

1. what kind of fs do you believe is on 'sdu'?
2. what does /etc/fstab look like?
3. you don't mount disks, you mount partitions eg sdu1, not 'sdu'.
4. try these cmds
Code:
lsblk

blkid

# need to be root here & that's a lowercase 'L' btw
fdisk -l
BTW, RHEL5.x is now up to 5.10; you might want to consider updating for security & bug fixes.

Unmount f0: umnount /dev/f0

Please, don't post unrelated and unintelligible commands. If you really want to help, you have to take care of what you type.
