Vfat partition always mounts to /tmp/run/mountd/sda1



I have added an mSATA card to my Turris router.

On this card I have placed a vfat partion and one for LVM.

I don’t want to mount the vfat partition.

Now the vfat is always automatically mounted to /tmp/run/mountd/sda1 regardless what I do.

My last idea was to specify my own mountpount (e.g. /mnt/sda1) and to check how the system will behave.

Now the system behaves very strange: I have two mounts now: one in /tmp/run/mountd/sda1 and one in /mnt/sda1.

What can be done to convice the Turris not to mount my vfat partition?

Omnia Apple Mac NAS - Sharing HFS+ Drives [MacOS/OS X, non-APFS] (e.g. Time Machine, Shared Folder, ..)

May i ask what you going to use vfat partition for? Or why you even choose vfat as filesystem?

Could you give the output of this command:

cat /etc/config/fstab


Currently it looks like this:

config global
option anon_swap '0’
option anon_mount '0’
option delay_root '5’
option check_fs '0’
option auto_mount '0’
option auto_swap ‘0’

config mount
option uuid '1253373f-d88b-4286-b7ba-4e2b14ad9d73’
option enabled '1’
option target ‘/srv’

config swap
option enabled '1’
option device ‘/dev/mapper/vgTurris-swap’

config mount
option uuid '6075-3484’
option target '/mnt/sda1’
option enabled ‘1’


Oke, could you also give me the output of this.

In your /etc/config/fstab file,


config mount
option uuid '6075-3484'
option target '/mnt/sda1'
option enabled '1'


config mount
option uuid '6075-3484'
option target '/mnt/sda1'
option enabled '0'


Same result.

Did you give the Omnia a reboot?


Yes - I rebooted the device after this change.


Just a moment. Gonna take a look around.

Could you give the output of this…

cat /etc/config/mountd

config mountd mountd
option	timeout		60
option	path		/tmp/mounts/


I thought i had read this issue somewhere else…

LuCi–>Startup–>mountd click on “enabled” (which disables it on startup and click on “stop” all the way to the right to stop the process now)

Let me know how it went.


I did this:

/ec/init.d/mountd disable

After reboot I was rid of this mount.

Thank you!

Partitions on the SSD disk mounted twice

Very nice!! GREAT SUCCESS!!


Please mark this topic as “solved”.

Po aktualizaci - restartu, se odpojí NTFS NAS

But it also stops the automatic mounting of USB keys, no? (I have the same problem and I do not want to disable automatic mounting.)


go to LuCI > Mount Points > Anonymous Mount

Honestly mountd should never get installed since it’s a legacy package
