I have a server which the date will be backup to a external windows server hard disk which is mounted. But problem is every time the server is restarted I will need to mount the disk manually. How do I setup such as it will be mounted on server startup?

    what command do you use to mount it? – tshepang Nov 20 '10 at 8:59

you need to put an entry into /etc/fstab

The exact line you put in depends on how you mount the filesystem e.g. is it NFS ,sftp or samba accessed.

  • "Windows Server hard disk" I think it's relatively safe to assume he is using samba. – Macha Nov 20 '10 at 15:37
