How may I mount a USB stick on a netfence box?


On phion legacy Heavensgate/Appligo appliances the attempt to mount a USB stick brings a error message that the mount device is not a valid block device. You can ignore this message.


The kernel load the usb-storage module at boot time. If you plug in the stick after the boot into a running system the driver will not be loaded.


Load the "usb-storage" module before mounting a USB flashdisk on a box. Use following commands to do so:

    mkdir /mnt/usb
    modprobe usb-storage
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb



If you use SCSI or RAID controler, the partition sda1 is maybe already used. In this case the USB-Stick will be use another label (e.g. sdb1). With the command "mount -l" you will find out, which label is used.
