I'm running Ubuntu 12.04. A second hard drive connected to this computer does not mount when the computer boots. Additionally, I have set up the drive to be shared but the share is not retained, the share is lost after each boot.
My main system drive and a removable drive mount OK and shares remain between boots.
Additional information follows:
D2Linux sda1 is the secondary hard drive
L-Freeagent sdc1 is the removeable drive
Here is the contents of fstab immediately after booting (D2Linux /dev/sda1 not yet mounted):
'# /etc/fstab: static file system information. '
'# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a '
'# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices '
'# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). '
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
'# / was on /dev/sdb1 during installation '
UUID=43d29a82-66b3-40f3-91ed-735a27a60004 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
'# swap was on /dev/sdb5 during installation
UUID=cf8e3351-11d0-487a-8a6e-e499c2e88a10 none swap sw ' 0 0
Here is the output of mount with all drives mounted (I did not restore the share):
