Problems with auto mount external hdd-drives.


Hi

I have a problem that i have tried to solve for a couple of days. I got a server with some internal disks. Those disks are for the core-system and some file server related stuff. Beside the server i got two external LaCie boxes that contains 4x1tb disks each. The disks inside the boxes are RAID5, so the system sees every box as one whole "disk".

Now to the problem. I just canīt get those "two" RAID cofigurations two be auto mounted at boot. I have tried to put them in /etc/fstab with a whole bunch of different options but nothing works. The system sees them but don't auto mount them, and i can manually mount them without any problem at all. I have tried to "google" the problem but can't find any similar.

I should be grateful for some nice tip-offs along the way. The system is SUSE 11.2.

What is currently in your fstab and are there any errors or messages in the logs/dmesg?

currently i have my internal disks there also as RAID5 configurations. And all of those disks are working great, and auto mounts.

I can't give you any logs right now because my server is offline at another location. But tomorrow i will post fresh logs from dmesg.
By the way i can tell that the system as it is, don't show any particullar error messages.

I may also say that those disks are connected to the server with USB...

Hallo there.. back in business.

I got some fresh dmesg logs here for you to investigate. Today when i started the machine everything booted up normally AND both of the external disks were auto mounted, but in read only! So when i tried to give them RW instead and rebooted they didn't auto mount again.... =/

Here is the log.. sdc and sdd are the external disks which runs RAID5:

I hope you can't solve something from this.

Best regards!
