Looking for a way to check a mount point is mounted and is writable and if not remount the mount point. For some reason this mount point will become unavailable to write too and when the script runs, to copy files to the mount point it fails. In the fstab it is listed as /dev/sdc1 /mnt/iscsi ext3 _netdev 0 0 this has worked fine for a couple of years but now it will get lost for some reason? And if I umount and mount the device again it will work for a while? I need to write a shell script to monitor a Linux mount point on Linux. Basically, this is what I want the script to do: * check if the mount point is there; if yes, do nothing * if no, try to mount it again I can put this into a cron job to run ever so often Thanks for any help.
