Hard Drive mounting / unmounting
I'm trying to setup a backup system for a friend using rsync and cron to copy certain files to an external hard drive on a daily basis. This machine is used basically as a file server and theres no monitor or other peripherals attached to it. The catch is my friend wants to be able to swap the external with another one that is identical. However since he doesn't have peripherals hooked up to the machine he can't unmount the drive and if you just unplug it and plug in the other one the second one doesn't mount automatically. I have fstab set to keep track of the hard drives by volume name and the mount point for both drives is at /media/backup. Is there any way that it can be setup to swap the drives without interaction with the machine? He's using OpenSuse 10.3 if it matters.
