Installation and Upgrades / Add an External USB Raid Drive
« on: January 26, 2015, 12:07:34 am »
I am trying to add an external USB raid drive.  I have partitioned it as one large partition and formatted ext4.  Here is the output from blkid:
 sudo blkid
/dev/sda2: UUID="5f9c233c-45a8-4380-92cc-ba573cdfd03a" TYPE="ext2"
/dev/sda3: UUID="pIAN8x-eRfB-tiFS-cgIU-1DyO-wwf1-LDAEPO" TYPE="LVM2_member"
/dev/mapper/absolute5--vg-root: UUID="22a1b4ab-221f-4a0f-a6f9-5c331c20f50c" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/mapper/absolute5--vg-swap_1: UUID="a162c99d-b195-495e-857b-688c892b1434" TYPE="swap"
/dev/sdb1: UUID="6ab94a73-9d73-4473-bbf9-1281eb972302" TYPE="ext4"

I have edited /etc/fstab and added:
UUID=6ab94a73-9d73-4473-bbf9-1281eb972302    /media/data    ext4    acl,users,noauto,errors=remount-ro    0    1

saved the file and rebooted.  When i do a mount here is the result:

/dev/mapper/absolute5--vg-root on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro,usrquota,grpquota,acl,user_xattr)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
none on /sys/fs/cgroup type tmpfs (rw)
none on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)

tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,size=10%,mode=0755)
none on /run/lock type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=52428800)
none on /run/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
none on /run/user type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=104857600,mode=0755)
none on /sys/fs/pstore type pstore (rw)
/dev/sda2 on /boot type ext2 (rw)
systemd on /sys/fs/cgroup/systemd type cgroup (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,none,name=systemd)

Ultimately I would like to keep shares and user data on this external raid.  Can I do that?

All help is greatly appreciated!


I have a mac mini with a SSD on which I have had Zentyal running for about a year.  I tried to update to 4.0 from 3.5 but it failed.  I went to a terminal window and tried a sudo apt-get update then a sudo apt-get upgrade.  The update appeared to work but the upgrade failed.  I then tried a sudo apt-get -f install.  This also failed and gave the message "cannot copy extracted data for './boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-43-generic' to '/boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-43-generic.dpkg-new': failed to write (No space left on device)". 

I tried 'apt-get autoremove' and get the following message:
"Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 linux-image-extra-3.13.0-43-generic : Depends: linux-image-3.13.0-43-generic but it is not installed
 linux-image-generic : Depends: linux-image-3.13.0-43-generic but it is not installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f."

Can I add an additional external disk (usb raid) and reallocate the partitions? 



Hello Everyone,
I want to use Zentyal as a router and was wondering if anyone has a hardware suggestion for a small footprint, low power consumption box.  Something like an Intel NUC only with dual NIC Cards.

Thanks to everyone in advance.

I am unable to join windows 7 pro machines to a Zentyal PDC. 
I get the message "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password." from the Win7 clients.
I started this project a couple months ago with v3.2 64 bit running on a AMD Phenom / Gigabyte combo.  I followed the videos from the Jonas Technology site and got the above error.  I tried connecting a clean in stall of Windows 7 pro and still didn't have success.  I installed Zentyal on a Intel Atom based machine and had the same error.
I gave up until this last weekend when I had time again.  This time I installed 3.4 64bit on a Mac Mini I7 computer.  I followed all of the steps in Part 1 tutorial, several times, (sometimes doing a apt -get update or upgrade and other things) always with the same error. 
I thought maybe there was something in my router/gateway, so I replaced it with a freshly reset Linksys WRT54G.  So my network is a cable modem, fresh WRT54G and a switch (not managed).  I re-installed on the new network and received the same error.  I reinstalled and used a different user name thinking that there might be a conflict with that (I was using administrator).  Same Problem.  I tried a different hostname finally landing on  Still the same problems.  What am I missing?
I would really like to get this working for my home network so I can administer user shares and have roaming profiles.

The next post contains the output from dpkg.  (the message length was too long)

Thanks to everyone in advance!
