I'm having a problem connecting EBS volume to my Ubuntu EC2 Instance.
Here's what I did:
1. From the Amazon AWS Console, I created an EBS 150GB volume and attached it to an Ubuntu "version" EC2 instance. Under the EBS volume properties, "Attachment" shows: "[my Ubuntu instance id]:/dev/sdf (attached)"
2. Tried mounting the drive on the Ubuntu box, and it told me "mount: /dev/sdf is not a block device
sudo mount /dev/sdf /vol
3. So I checked with fdisk and tried to mount from the new location and it told me it wasn't the right file system.
sudo fdisk -l
sudo mount -v -t ext4 /dev/xvdf /vol
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/xvdf, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
"dmesg | tail" told me it gave the following error:
EXT4-fs (sda1): VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem
Q1: Based on point 1 (above), why was the volume mapped to 'dev/sdf' when it's really mapped to '/dev/xvdf'?
Q2: What else do I need to do to get the EBS volume loaded? I thought it'll just take care of everything for me when I attach it to an instance.
