Mount USB stick on appliance or SPLAT



Mount USB stick on appliance or SPLAT


Ever wanted to use an USB stick on OpenServer using SPLAT or an appliance?

Just connect the device to an USB port of your choice.

1. Load the appropriate kernel module for handling the USB device
modprobe usb-storage

2. Check which new device was bound, for example /dev/sda1
fdisk -l

3. Create a mount point
mkdir /mnt/usbdisk

4. Mount USB device
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usbdisk

5. Use the device to transfer data as you like

6. Unmount USB device
umount /mnt/usbdisk
