so I'm trying to mount my external hard drive automatically on my server running Ubuntu 14.04.
I've tried editing fstab directly, I've tried gnome disks and I've tried Usbmount. None of them work after my server automatically resets every morning.
My fstab file looks like this
GNU nano 2.4.2 File: /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=e08eb43c-11ba-40e1-bc9d-122c364960d7 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 /swapfile none swap sw 0 0 #/dev/sdb2 /mnt/ext/drive01 ntfs-3g errors=remount-ro 0 1 UUID=764A847D4A843C3D /mnt/ext/drive01 ntfs-3g nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0
The bottom most entry is the one relevant to the hard drive. It just simply wont auto mount on start up. I have to go into it, unmount it and then remount it other wise I get the error
Failed to mount "Backup Drive". Error when getting information for file
/mnt/ext/drive01: Transport endpoint is not connected"
If anyone could help clear up the problem that'd be great.
