I rebooted my server and on boot up I received an error that ... couldn't find matching file system: LABEL=/home1 I was able to edit the /etc/fstab and rem out the line that mounts /home1, I then did a reboot, and was able to boot up correctly. If I did a mount -a I got the error... mount: special device LABEL=/home1 does not exist When I did a ... mount /dev/hdb1 /home1 It mounted fine, with no errors. Any one have any ideas???...

    couldn't find matching file system: LABEL=/home1

    I was able to edit the /etc/fstab and rem out the line that mounts /home1, I

    It mounted fine, with no errors.

    LABEL refers to volume label or UUID.

    [c]fdisk will allow you to check the current volume label for /dev/hdb1.
    Set with e2label or similar. Alternatively, name the device explicitly in
    fstab.

    Sounds like you are using a label identifier (home1) in your
    /etc/fstab to define which device to mount, but you don't
    have a partition labelled with that identifier.

    You can either change /etc/fstab to use the device name instead:

    Edit /etc/fstab and change the line which begins:

    LABEL=/home1 /home1 ...etc.

    ...so that it reads:

    /dev/hdb1 /home1 ...etc.


    Or you can add a label to the appropriate partition. Assuming
    you're running ext2/3...

    e2label /dev/hdb1 /home1

    ...should do it.

    Hope this helps

    Simon.
