Re: Filesystems Not Mounting

Let me clarify:
      At boot time when all of the entries in fstab are normally mounted,
      the duplicates in the fstab are not mounted. The duplicate entries
      are a result of the following:
Stop! Right here put a copy of your /etc/fstab file.

         As an example, I entered a 'ls -ltr /usr/oracle' and a single line
         containing 0 was returned (it should have at least showed the
         lost+found directory entry).
Your treating /usr/oracle as a directory but I think It might be a partition???
         I then entered 'sudo mount -a'; and received many messages stating
         that there are missing mount points.
Mount -a is to mount everything in fstab. But that is done normal during boot.

         As an example I entered 'sudo mkdir -p /usr/oracle'
         I then entered:  'sudo mount /dev/mapper/DBMSVG00-DBMSLV00
         /usr/oracle' (from my fstab entry)
         At this point is when I realized that there are now duplicate
         entries in fstab, however, /usr/oracle is available and usable.

I have no idea how you got here. Please which system are you talking about and show us your /etc/fstab and your grub.conf files.


I hope this clarifies my situation.

    I am not seeing what the problem is. You say IT all works fine on
FC6. But you tried both F7 and F8 and you were not able to mount some
file systems. Now where are these file systems now?

     If they are on FC6 I should think you can cp -a from FC6 to F8 any
file system you want.

    You are talking about /etc/fstab and it has NOTHING to do with file
systems. Fstab is used to connect whole partitions to a main part.

    So please some details. Are you trying to move your Orical data base
directories to F8? That will not work. Orical has files all over the FC6
file system.
