I’ve read here that this is not supported out of the box, but would it be possible to manually mount the device via SSH? I’m not a Linux expert, so I’m wondering if it is.
Why I want to do this? I have a My Book Studio Edition II (2 TB) hooked to the MBLD and in order to avoid fragmentation I formatted it in ext4, then I received an error in the UI dashboard saying that a share couldn’t be created on the USB attached device.
I’m formatting it in ext3 to try again, but I assume it won’t work neither.
EDIT: well, I’ve read in the help text inside the UI that ext4 should be supported for attached USB drives. What a contradiction! Why doesn’t it work then?
Any USB device with the following file formats: NTFS HFS or HFS+J FAT or FAT32 EXT2, EXT3, or EXT4
EDIT 2: This is the alert I get on the UI dashboard:
A share could not be created on a USB device (vendor: Western Digital, model: My Book, serial number: <my serial number>, file system: ext4, label: , share name: My_Book_2).
