mount a large usb for recordings

Recommended Posts

I have mounted a 1TB usb disk to hold my recordings, and added a symbolic link to it.

 

However how do I change where Snom stores these files as my link gets deleted on every reboot.

 

Can I change the files locations?

 

Thanks for looking.

Symbol link in the file system? They are permanent. The PBX has no influence on that.

 

1 TB is a lot. Does the system maybe perform a file system check after reboot? That would take longer I guess. Can you log in with SSH after reboot and check if you can manually mount the drive? Do other drives lets say with 200 GB work without problems?

Dont have aby problems mounting the drive, works fine.

 

The issue is keeping the symbolic link after a reboot.

 

Is it possible to just change the location within the Snom application for recordings to say "/media/usb0/recordings" instead of using a symbolic link. The problem is the memory on the SoHo is just so small.

I did a little bit of research on the search terms "linux external drive reboot symbolic lnk", This seems to be a general Linux problem, not only for the embedded Linux.

 

But I think it is also possible to specify an absolute path for the recording location, e.g. /media/usb/recordings/$i-$d.wav
