Pointing Images to Secondary HDD without losing data
herrpommesfrite last edited by
My fog server HDD corrupted and failed and I had to reinstall Ubuntu on a new drive. Thankfully, all of our images are on a Secondary HDD and were unaffected by the failure. I have reinstalled ubuntu and FOG 1.5.0 and I am trying to add the Secondary HDD so that FOG pulls my existing images and my new images put on the secondary drive.
My computer sees the drive and has it as /media/fog/d40b9b49-226e-4e64-b365-0b7b71d9ed3b but i am not great with linux and don’t know how to do this, and i do not want to lose all of my images.

/media/fog/… is just where it’s located after being mounted. You need to find out what it’s actually named per device.
You should be able to see it if you run:
cd /media/fog/d40b9b49-226e-4e64-b365-0b7b71d9ed3b df -h
This should show only the mounted device. It would appear something like:
/dev/mapper/mastaweb--vg-root 293G 32G 247G 12% /
The /dev is the part you need to know.
From there, post back here and we can try to help you in what you need to do.
For reference, it would be adding to the /etc/fstab file.
