Hi
Are you running ext4 on the drives per chance? Else what are the format
of the drives/partitions?

Hi
OK, then it's probably the ext4 your having issues with as it's only
supported for reading. You need to set it for rw (which isn't
supported), see the release notes here;
https://www.suse.com/releasenotes/x86_64/SUSE-SLED/11-SP3/#fate-314864

So can you provide the output from the command;


lsblk

Then add the filesystem type (eg ext4) to each partition and the mount
points your wanting them to be.

Whilst you've posted in a forum related to SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop
(SLED), note that "suse 11.3 sp3" could mean SLED 11 SP3, SLES 11 SP3,
or even openSUSE 11.3. Please can you be more specific since your
situation and any responses may vary depending on which you're using.

HTH.

Hi
So which of the above devices are you wanting to mount via fstab? Can you advise the filesystem in use for each partition your wanting to mount and also where your wanting to add (as in a directory).

For example I have a data partition and mount as;


/dev/sda3 /data btrfs rw,noatime,ssd,discard 0 0
