The linux machines will mount the USB disk automatically when you plug them in. However, we need to export them so that the sga VME PowerPC can see the disk. The procedure to make make a USB disk available for data taking with the sga system is:
/usr/local/bin/gsexportfs NAMEwhere NAME is the name from above. The utility will show the command it is executing and a list of disks that are exported on the machine.
datadir host /media/NAME e.g. datadir gslinux1 /media/IOMEGA_HD1
