Mount External Hard Disk (connected in Windows Server) in Solaris 11

Hello Solaris Admins,
I have a 2 TB WD My Book External Hard Disk connected to a Windows 2008 Server and needs to mount it in Solaris 11 Server.
For mounting a directory in File Server i am using the following Command
mount -F smbfs "hostname;username:[email protected]//hostname/<SharedFolderName>" /ext_storage
Can i use the smbfs option for mounting the External Storage also.
Thanks,

Thanks Pascal for your reply.
I will confirm once the mounting is done.

  • External Hard disk connected to time capsule not visible in windows vista

    I have connected my external hard disk to Time capsule. Am Able to find the same in my MBP in finder under shared. But with windows I am not able to see this hard disk. I have installed airport utility and am able to see the time capsule. What to do?

    What is the format on the external USB drive?
    Have you setup the disk in workgroup correctly to the network workgroup name?
    Turn on guest read and write at least to get things started. If you turn on password or changed the default password you will need to remember that.
    How are you trying to access the disk? It will more than likely not show up in network shares, without deliberately using the tc ip.. so open explorer and type in \\YOUR_TC_IP_ADDRESS\Share_name
    If you have installed the airport utility for windows it should also install the required files to find the disk.

  • Is it possible to use an external Hard disk to install Windows OS (7 or 8) for bootcamp?

    I have recently got a Macbook Pro with Retina Display 13" late 2013, with 120 GB of memory. I want to install a Windows OS on my macbook but i dont want to take up the sace on it, so instead i got an external Hard Drive with 500 GB with the Mac OS Extended (journaled) format and i was wondering if i can use that for installing Windows and access it using BootCamp.
    I dont want to use my macbook storage for windows... so any ideas?

    Macologist250,
    to use Boot Camp, Windows must be on your MacBook Pro’s internal disk. You could try a virtualizer such as VirtualBox or Parallels Desktop if you’d rather have Windows on an external disk.

  • Mounting external Hard Disk

    Hello.
    I have an external HDD (USB) that I use for moving large files between computers. I plugged it into my Mac and it mounted fine, worked great. Unfortunately, Spotlight immediately took over and started indexing the heck out of the drive. I tried adding the drive to Spotlight's Private pane, but it wouldn't add and kept on indexing. I killed mdimport, but the CPU was still through the roof and the drive wouldn't eject (dialogue said that it was in use). I didn't have time for any of this crap, so I did the only reasonable thing to get the Mac to quit working like crazy on the drive--I yanked the USB cord. Worked great, even if the computer bitched at me about not doing that. Yeah, I know it was a bad idea, but I didn't see any other choices in my immediate time frame.
    So, now Finder won't mount the HDD. All the data appears to be there. The drive works fine. Windows has no issues mounting it. Is there some hidden file (like all those .ds_stores) that might be corrupted on the HDD, or some file on my Mac that I can trash that will get the HDD to mount like normal again? I haven't tried mounting the HDD on a different Mac. Any suggestions appreciated.

    1. You wrote: " But my CPU usage goes to near 100%, and Activity Monitor does not list any processes to account for this (mdimport is not listed)."
    1.1. Is that CPU utilization as reported by Activity Monitor?
    1.2. Have you sorted the list of processes in descending order by %CPU? In Activity Monitor, click the %CPU column heading until the list is in descending order.
    1.3. Before connecting and powering-on the drive, set up Activity Monitor as noted above. Additionally, in Activity Monitor, select View > Update Frequency > Very Often. Then connect the drive and power it on, watching Activity Monitor.2. Per your other questions re: Finder, if it was a Finder issue, Finder would be the process consuming the CPU per Activity Monitor. 100K files is nothing for Finder. Is the drive or a folder on the drive open in a Finder window when this happens?
    3. Is this a new drive? If so, I'd contact the manufacturer or vendor: it may be defective. If not a new drive, what changes did you make to your system before this problem arose.
    4. Have you tried a different USB cable? Different USB port?
    5. See if an errant Startup or Login Item is causing the problem: see my "Troubleshooting Startup and Login Items" FAQ.
    6. When the problem occurs, immediately check these Console logs for clues.
    Good luck!

  • Upgraded to 10.4.9 on MBP 15", now, I can't mount external hard disk!

    Hi all,
    I have a LaCie 500GB drive that I've been using perfectly since I've gotten it, but alas, I upgraded to 10.4.9 and it no longer mounts either by it's USB interface or by its Firewire interface.
    My machine is a MBP 15" (2.16 GHz, 2 GB Ram), which works perfectly in all other respects and is now running 10.4.9.
    The symptoms are that when I plug it in, I usually get the message, "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" with the options "Initialize...", "Ignore", and "Eject". So far, I haven't pressed any buttons except Ignore or Eject. Sometimes, I do not get this message, but it still doesn't mount, it just silently does nothing.
    So, after pressing "Ignore", I've opened Disk Utility and had a look. The physical drive appears and there is one volume named "disk2s6" which for all purposes is probably my normal, logical volume (partition). However, last time it mounted on this machine, it was named "Archive". This logical volume is grey and will not mount no matter how many times I press the "Mount" button. It just does nothing.
    OK, so, while I'm in Disk Utility, I ran Verify Disk and, after the normal routine, it comes back with "No Repairs Necessary". I've also tried "Repair Disk" and this comes back "No repairs were necessary", again after the full, normal processing of the various things.
    I also performed a Fix Permissions on my startup-volume, but this didn't help either.
    Next test was to mount the disk on my MacMini (PPC) instead, also running 10.4.9. It mounts perfectly and it properly comes up with the name "Archive" as expected.
    I've then tried to mount other devices on my MBP including a USB memory key, and another external Firewire drive. These both mount perfectly on my MBP.
    While I was at this, I've also tried new USB and Firewire cables, this didn't affect my results in the least.
    I've finally verified that there is nothing in /Volumes out of the ordinary that might prevent it from mounting by doing a "sudo ls -la" whilst in /Volumes/. There's not a thing that would affect the mount-point.
    I then disabled my folder actions that I've been running on the directory /Volumes *I had an action used to backup my USB key). Unfortunately, I still have the same issue.
    Finally, I downloaded the Combo 10.4.9 installer, booted into Safe Mode (to trigger an automatic fsck), then rebooted and installed the 10.4.9 Combo installer, in case there was some weirdness in the Software Update upgrade to 10.4.9.
    What stone have I left unturned? Why won't this drive mount, but it works perfectly elsewhere? I want to get back to using Aperture on my MBP and my entire photo Library is on this disk (well, and backed up on another external drive, but it lives normally on my MBP).

  • Cannot access external hard disk

    I keep all my data in Segate external hard disk. Today I wanted to set up windows using Boot camp. The window installed but at the end it froze. By mistake I kept the External hard disk connected to my Macbook Pro. When I rebooted I cannot find the my external hard disk. I tried to access through Mac partiton but it displays waring.
    Saying I need to Initialize the external hard disk. That mean I will end up with erased hard disk which is not i want. Is there any option. ?
    It looks like Mac OS cant recognise the drive at all. When I open the Disk Uitiluty I can see the drive.
    Any ideas guys

    Try opening Disk Utility and try repairing the disk. It might hopefully be able to repair it. Otherwise you're probably looking at needing a tool like DiskWarrior 4…

  • ITunes showing Album Covers of external hard disk i/o internal hard disk

    Greetings from Malaysia again. Searched through the Discussion Group, but couldn't find anything there. Thus, hope to get your assistance on this matter.
    I have some music stored in the internal hard disk of my G4 iBook. However, recently I decided to have all my music stored in an EXTERNAL hard disk, ie in addition to what's in the iBook, to sync with my iPod. Both have the artwork or album covers. The issue is when I boot up ONLY the iBook, even without the external hard disk on, iTunes (Version 8.1) is showing the Artwork/Album Covers (and list of music) of the EXTERNAL hard disk instead of what's in the iBook. I've even tried the "Option key/Choose Library", but to no avail. I've even tried changing the location, after starting up iTunes in the Preference settings, but still the same story.
    Is there any way to have iTunes reflect the correct Artwork/Album Covers (and list of music) when I have the external hard disk connected, as well as otherwise?
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Regards.

    Moved the existing library. Created a new one, and moved all the songs to the new library. Subsequently, when using the "Option" key to select the library, it ended up as what I wanted, ie iTunes showing the album covers for the songs/album in the respective library - ie external hard disk, and internal in the notebook.

  • Copying or moving video from your Event Library to an external hard disk

    I have a Network Drive where I'm used to putted all my iMovie08 files.
    I'm start using iMovie09 and i'm no longer able to have my *files/library in a network drive*. Did apple remove this functionality? If this is true this is unbelievable because now a days everything goes to network storage. On iTunes i can have my library virtually anywhere. I need to have the same behavior when i'm using iMovie.
    Can someone help me?
    with my best regards,
    Paulo

    Copying or moving video from your Event Library to an external hard disk
    If you want to save space on your computer’s hard disk, you can move your stored video in your Event Library to a compatible external hard disk connected to your computer with a FireWire or USB 2.0 cable.
    You can also copy Events to another hard disk. You might do this, for example, if you want to create a duplicate copy of your video library or an Event on a friend’s hard disk.
    NOTE:When using an external hard disk with iMovie, make sure it has been formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    - If i understood correctly, the solution you propose will replace completely my hard disk library with NAS location.
    - What i need (because when i'm travelling i dont have my NAS) is to have both. My hard disk library and the ability to copy/move (drag & drop within iMovies09 ) events and projects to my NAS at my description as i use to do on iMovies08.
    And yes all my NAS locations appears with and yellow flag on iMovies09.

  • Share external hard disk

    Dear All,
    I have an external hard disk on my Mac Server OS X 10.3.9 it is shared drive in the office. I have another external disk I want to share that too.
    Can anyone tell me please, how can I share it?
    I tried to find the setting the first drive I couldn't find it on the server. When I plug-in the second external hard disk it comes on desktop When I click on "Get Info" there is no share check box. I did google it but couldn't find an article related that problem.
    Thanks in advance

    I tried to find the setting the first drive I couldn't find it on the server. When I plug-in the second external hard disk it comes on desktop When I click on "Get Info" there is no share check box.
    When you are running Mac OS X Server, the Sharing Checkbox (on the Server) is not available.
    Drives and Folders must be explicitly Shared using Server Admin, in
    /Applications > Server > Server Admin.app
    The "Mac OS X Server: Server Administration" document should be available on your DVD, and is also available from the Apple Web site.
    There are forums specifically for Mac OS X Server. The one you should post your query in is here:
    Discussions: Mac OS X Server: Mac OS X Server v10.4 and earlier
    For Readers using 10.5 Server and later: Different options become available in Server 10.5 and later. For a Standard or WorkGroup setup, you use the Server Preferences application (found in /Applications > Server > Server Preferences) Details of how to share a Folder or a whole drive appear in the "Mac OS X Server: Getting Started" DVD-sized booklet packed inside the Server DVD box.

    1) In 'ExFAT' format, is there a limitation on the file size?
    Not one that will matter.
    2) Is 'MAC OS Extended' format, only for MAC computers?
    Yes, only for Mac
    3) What are those (a) journaled (b) Encrypted & (c) Case-sensitive? or when to use those?
    Again, only for Mac.

  • Can't write to a Windows formatted external hard disk

    I moved the Windows XP formatted external hard disc from the Windows machine to the Imac. I can read files on the hard disc, can write from the external to the Mac, and can work with the files once they are on the Mac. But I cannot write to the external. I lack permission, the error message says.
    I talked with Apple via my AppleCare arrangement. They tell me I will have to reformat the disc for the Mac before I can write to it.
    The problem with the recommendation is that that disc, 160 gb, is over three-quarters filled with backup files for the home network. I can't afford to lose them.
    The puzzle is that the network sharing is uneven. So I'm led to think there is some problem with my setup. From the Mac, I can read and write to two Windows computers and the internal hard disc, the C drive, of the third. When the external hard disc was attached to that third computer, I was never able to see it from the Mac.
    None of the Windows machines can see the Mac.
    Any suggestions?

    When you go over a network, the Mac doesn't have to worry about writing to the destination disk, it just sends the appropriate TCP/IP packets and lets the PC that is serving the disk worry about writing to the disk. When the disk is connected directly, then the Mac has to know all about writing to that file system.
    It does seem to me that if Apple could read from the drive, they should be able to write to it, but apparently that was more complicated and they didn't implement it.
    As for the windows boxen not being able to see the Mac... have you considered installing Bonjour for Windows onto the PCs? My wife has PCs and I have Macs, but we're all networked together. We were having some networking issues, trying to share printers. So I had her install Bonjour on one of her boxes. Suddenly, all our networking problems went away. She could see my printers, and all my drive shares.
    So you might want to think about turning thinga around and serving off of the Mac.

  • Want to use a Lacie External Hard Disk with Windows and Mac? Can I?...

    Hi, I've just purchased a Lacie Extreme D2 external hard disk, I'm looking to use it to move film clips from my Mac G5 to my Sony Vaio laptop. I'll connect the Mac using Firewire 1 and the PC using USB 1.
    I understand there is an issue with setting the compaitibility of the hard disk to either Mac or Windows format but I'm wondering if I can set it to both, so it's possible to transfer these files? The hard disk is Windows and Mac compatible but does it have to be partitioned a certain way?
    Any help is much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Alex

    Format the drive as FAT or use the Mac format (HFS Extended) and install MacDrive on the PC.

  • Access external hard drive connected to Airport Extreme USB via Windows & Mac

    I have an Airport Extreme and I would like to connect an external hard drive to it via USB so that I can backup pictures, music, documents etc. I need to be able to see the external hard drive from my windows PC. I eventually will be buying a Mac so I would like to be able to also get to my pictures and documents via the MAC as well.
    I currenlty have an iPhone, iPad and Apple TV so getting to the external drive from these devices would be a huge bonus also if that is possible.
    I recently bought an ioSafe Solo External Hard Drive and I had to return it because it was only formatted for the PC. When I plugged it into my Airport Extreme, I could see the drive via the Airport Disk Utility but I could not see it from my PC and I could not map a drive to it. When I contacted ioSafe support, they said that what I was trying to do was not possible since I did not have a MAC available to me to reformat the drive.
    I hope that I am not trying to accomplish the impossible because I will always need to live in a MAC/PC world.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!

    You must know people with Macs.. it is 2min work to plug a USB drive into a Mac Laptop and format it Mac OS extended with a quick format.. And that is better IMHO than buying a utility or buying a pre-formatted drive which are often more expensive for no very good or obvious reason.
    Another option is a Linux boot disk.. Linux distributions have very similar command line tools to the Mac OS. (some are identical) and HFS+ has been available for ages in Linux.

    You do not need the Setup Assistant; in fact, you do not need any software on an external hard drive. I have two LaCie's; I erased the drive as soon as I plugged it in. You will need to format it anyway because most hard drives come Windows formatted. So, if you only want to use it with the Mac, highlight it in Disk Utility and choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as the format and the GUID Partition scheme under Options. While doing that, it will erase the drive (and get rid of the LaCie software) - once finished, your drive is ready to use for Time Machine or any other backup plans you have for it.
