Problems Mounting Second Partition



  • When I installed pfSense, I created a second slice to use for the tFTP Storage and other misc. storage.  However, I cannot seem to mount it.

    
    [2.0.2-RELEASE][admin@watchguard.wx0ps.lan]/root(13): fdisk -s
    /dev/ad4: 155061 cyl 16 hd 63 sec
    Part        Start        Size Type Flags
       1:          63    20971377 0xa5 0x80
       2:    20971440   135330048 0xa5 0x00
    
    

    Slice #2, ad4s2, is what I'm trying to get mounted.  It "should" already be formatted freebsd.  The mount point "/vol2" was created.

    
    [2.0.2-RELEASE][admin@watchguard.wx0ps.lan]/root(14): mount -t u2fs /dev/ad4s2 /vol2
    mount: /dev/ad4s2 : Operation not supported by device
    [2.0.2-RELEASE][admin@watchguard.wx0ps.lan]/root(15): mount -t ufs /dev/ad4s2 /vol2
    mount: /dev/ad4s2 : Invalid argument
    [2.0.2-RELEASE][admin@watchguard.wx0ps.lan]/root(16): mount -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/ad4s2 /vol2
    mount: /dev/ad4s2 mount option <ufstype>is unknown: Invalid argument</ufstype> 
    

    Anyone have any ideas?  Greatly appreciated!

    You have the correct partition type (0xa5) but have you created a FreeBSD file system on that slice? From memory, you will need to put a FreeBSD label on the slice and specify the layout of the FreeBSD partitions. The FreeBSD handbook will give further details.



  • Was able to get this figured out.

    Looks like the file system was not formatted.  Ran "newfs" on it, and all is good in the world again.
