Hello Everyone,

This CentOS wiki article:

http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/NTFS

should work under CentOS-6. If you encounter any issue, please report back with details.

i had the same problem and i solved through RPMForge...

with a few steeps the problem is gone:

1. open the terminal window with the root account.

2. download rpmforge for centos 6 to your system:

wget http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

3. now install the rpmforge for centos 6:

rpm -Uvh http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

4. just install/update the package fuse-ntfs-3g:

# yum update fuse-ntfs-3g

5. mount your units:

# mount -a


:-D

Hi Guys

I have a similar problem, and beside follow Herzer steps, I cant mount my NTFS volume on Centos 6.
This is messing me for a while...

Well, it starts with a iSCSI config for a render nodes configuration - see my post on:

https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=32533&forum=58

The iSCSI setup is done with usefull help from Phil and Trevor. Now my problem reside with NTFS mount part.

To short:

My system is a HP proliant DL380G4 with 6 disks in a SmartArray controller - a 72Gb for Centos OS (Centos 6) and the other 5 x 146Gb in a Raid 0 for Storage/iSCSI.
I config the Raid0 in HP setup (on boot » bios hardware setup)
Centos find the disks with no problem - one Raid 0 with one disk (72Gb - need to do this to separate in 2 parts at startup) and other Raid 0 with the other 5 disks (around 700Gb).
After install Centos, I run fdisk to setup the Raid 0>700Gb to NTFS (id 7) - this is my " fdisk -l " info:

(only the /dev/cciss/c0d1 part)

Disk /dev/cciss/c0d1: 734.1 GB, 734054440960 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 89243 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xf80f0dee

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/cciss/c0d1p1 1 89243 716844366 7 HPFS/NTFS

I can mount it on windows machines (on Lan machines trough microsoft iSCSI initiator)
I can mount, format, read and write files in it with all my windows PCs (NTFS), but I cant mount this disks (raid0) in NTFS on Centos machine (DL 380 G4 and other DLs 160 render nodes with Centos).
If I use LVM with Linux FS I can mount on Centos OS, but I can access it on Windows PCs...
I need NTFS in both systems (Win and Centos).

When I try

ntfs-3g /dev/cciss/c0d1p1 /mnt/PROJECTS

I got this error:

NTFS signature is missing.
Failed to mount '/dev/cciss/c0d1p1': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/cciss/c0d1p1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.
Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?


change to c0d1 is the same...


I think its because its a Raid 0?
Any work around?
As a last resort, if I cant setup NTFS on Centos, is there another fileSystem avaiable to run in both systems that allow big size files and fastand reliable access?

Kind regards

Antonio

Sorry Phil and all guys at forum!

As this topic is similar to my problem I think was better continue in it that start another one with the same problem...

Sorry again (newbie in forum too - my fault)
I will delete the previous reply...
By the way Phil - is better continue in network section on my thread or use this section for NTFS issues?

Kind regards

Antonio

Please start a new topic in whatever forum looks appropriate for your question. As it seems rather nebulous to me at this point, perhaps General would be the best home.

Don't you need to mount the iSCSI device on CentOS as well?

Hi Trevor

To avoid any mess up in this thread and on my old iSCSI thread, as Phil suggest, I start a new topic about my NTFS mount issue on Centos6-General Support topics:

https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=32818&forum=55

Anyway, answering your question, - yes, but I need mount it as NTFS to be available in Centos and Windows - this is my problem...

Kind regards

Antonio
