    Mount a share

    Okay people here's the situation. We've just recently started exploring the usage of Clonezilla (server edition) to image our machines. We have that set up and it images just fine to a local directory on the Clonezilla server. What I'd like to do is mount a share on our QNAP NAS box to the directory of /clonezilla on the Clonezilla server. The QNAP box with the share on has the filesystem of EXT4.

    SO assuming that the QNAP box is called qnap and the share is called ADMIN, with the filesystem being EXT4

    So this is the command I have issued:
    sudo mount -t (not sure of filesystem, have tried a few different ones) //qnap/ADMIN


    All I get is, "Special device //qnap/ADMIN does not exist". So what am I doing wrong? BTW I'm a bit of a Linux n00b, I've dabbled but am by no means experienced. Any help given would be appreciated.

    Is the QNAS box working as a Windows-type of server (i.e. is it visible by browsing from Windows?)

    If so, I'm guessing you need to install smb/Samba on your Ubuntu machine.

    This might shed some light

    Yes, the QNAP box is browseable from Windows. Will attempt your suggestion and post back.

    Your link gave me the help I needed and you were right, I needed smbfs. Used that to mount the drive via fstab using username and password.

    Might be better to write a mount script to run at startup. If uBuntu is anything like FreeBSD, if it can't mount one of the fstab file systems, the whole boot procedure stops and the box drops into singleuser mode, so in the case of a powercut beyond UPS lifespan, you're dependant on the QNAP box coming up before the uBuntu box does.
