Re: virt-sparsify for ntfs (libguestfs-tools-c)

Got advice from the libguestfs mailling list and it works.

dnf install libguestfs-winsupport

Did this also,

dnf install ntfsprogs
dnf install ntfs-3g-system-compression

Now everything is working properly.

Solved - virt-sparsify for ntfs (libguestfs-tools-c)

Hi, On CentOS 8, when using virt-sparsify for a ntfs image, it does not seem to work. Tried virt-sparsify on Fedora 32 and it works great. Is there some dependent application that need to be installed in CentOS 8 for virt-sparsify to work on ntfs? Here are some information. CentOS 8. # virt-sparsify...

[SOLVED]Re: Booting problem: mount: you must specify the filesystem type

Thanks to all your help, the problem is solved. Did the following change to the /boot/grub/grub.conf and /etc/fstab. For grub.conf, I changed root=/dev/md1 to root=UUID=f91a794d-2bfd-44c5-abf1-c4ad8c4139bd and added rd_MD_UUID=dce65261:eb5eb12a:9cf04c7a:ecbfd465 ---------- grub.conf -------------- F...

Re: Booting problem: mount: you must specify the filesystem type

And that particular kernel boots ok normally? With /dev/sda and /dev/sdb in the server, the kernel boots ok and the server is working fine. I remove /dev/sdb, the grub comes up, starts the kernel. When it needs to go to the root to continue, then we get the error. Very strange. When I do "cat /proc...

Re: Booting problem: mount: you must specify the filesystem type

Tried with rdshell in grub. Then it says that it cannot find the root. Some how it does not seem to mount the root. I am guessing. Here is the photo with the rdshell.

Re: Booting problem: mount: you must specify the filesystem type

/dev/sdb2 swap swap defaults 0 0 If you're trying to remove /dev/sdb then you will need to stop the system from using that swap area (swapoff /dev/sdb2) and comment it out of fstab. I suspect that's the error you hit that caused the problem. Incidentally that would have stopped your system from fun...

Re: Booting problem: mount: you must specify the filesystem type

You haven't given enough information for anyone to be able to help you. Post the output from fdisk -lu on all drives, the contents of /etc/fstab, the grub.cfg stanza for the current kernel, the output from the commands pvs, vgs and lvs. My bad. Here's the information. Let me know if more is needed....

[SOLVED]Re: Booting problem: mount: you must specify the filesystem type

Hi, This is a centos 6 server with software raid1 drives. One of the drives has smart errors, so we needed to change the hard drive /dev/sdb. We shutdown the server. Replaced /dev/sdb with a new drive and booted the server. The grub shows up and starts to boot. Then the error happens. "mount: you mu...
