I did some searches but wasn't able to find the answer. It's probably too simple, and yes I've read most of the FAQs and instructions.
I have a client who has his own server with a single drive. He brought in another drive with an older backup (same filesystem format), and wanted to update his backup. We installed the drive but it wasn't recognized, and I am not accomplished enough to figure out why the drive couldn't be mounted. Can someone tell me the series of commands to mount a new drive without destroying the contents.
N.B. we finally were able to accomplish the task by inserting the drive and rebooting, letting fstab automatically be updated. Are there commands I could use as a batch script to do this remotely from now on?
Thanks for any help.
