When you try to mount a formatted disk to a different server, you might get the following error.
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb, missing codepage or helper program, or other error
There could be many reasons for this error. What i found is , normally if you try to mount a partitioned disk, this error would appear.
First check if the disk is partitioned using the following command.
[email protected]:$ lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 10G 0 disk └─sda1 8:1 0 10G 0 part / sdb 8:16 0 1T 0 disk └─sdb1 8:17 0 1024G 0
In the example you can see that sdb is partitioned to sdb1. So instead of mounting the device
/dev/sdb1 partition. An example mount command is shown below.
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mount/path
