I have two physical volumes ( /dev/sda3 and /dev/sdb1 ) connected to one volume group (fileserver). When I boot up my computer and open up the file explorer, on the left, I see a Devices pane that says my volume group. However, I cannot connect to this server from any client until I click it. Clicking the volume group mounts it because it shows the eject arrow sign right next to it. As soon as I click it, then I am able to connect to the server and see my files.
My question is: how do I automate this process every time Ubuntu starts? I tried going to the Startup Applications and using this command
mount /dev/mapper/fileserver-media /media/bfbe53bd-3306-401b-a8df-4363564cf1fc
but it didn't seem to do anything. I attached a picture to show what I mean.
This is what it looks like when I turn on my computer. http://i1285.photobucket.com/albums/a582/sameetandpotatoes/Before_zpsa67a3e4f.png
Now, this is what it looks like when I click on the device: http://i1285.photobucket.com/albums/a582/sameetandpotatoes/2_zps5c91a322.png
Here are the Terminal outputs of pvscan, vgscan, etc.
sameet@sapraserver:~$ sudo pvscan
PV /dev/sda3 VG fileserver lvm2 [216.07 GiB / 18.89 GiB free]

sameet@sapraserver:~$ sudo vgscan
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
