Have a pre-existing graid enclosure (named localdisk) that Im trying to mount on /localdisk mounting point.
I am attempting to mount manually via terminal because I want to choose the mountpoint, not the default under /volumes.
First things fist, I am making sure the drive is unmounted, which it is.
Next, I am grabbing the name from diskutil list, which is /dev/disk2. Then, I am running , as root :
diskutil mount -mountPoint /localdisk /dev/disk2
Volume on disk2 failed to mount, if it has a partitioning scheme, use "diskutil mountDisk"
Okay, fine. So then I am running
diskutil mountDisk /dev/disk2. This mounts it at the default point, under /volumes, which is not acceptable. So I unmount again, and then try:
diskutil mountDisk -mountPoint /localdisk /dev/disk2. As expected, this gives the standard “usage” return for when you are using improper syntax.
