I am running Ubuntu Core on my Raspberry Pi and I would like to map a drive connected to a local server.
On other devices I use the
sshfs to map this drive locally and it works.
However on Ubuntu Core for armhf the sshfs is not installed and I could not find a snap to install it.
To solve this I tried to mount using systemd. The content of the
home-localuser-remotedata.mount file looks like this:
[Unit] Description=Mount unit for data [Mount] Whatfirstname.lastname@example.org:/ Where=/home/localuser /remotedata Type=fuse.sshfs Options=umask=0007,uid=1000,gid=1000,Port=65000,IdentityFile=/home/localuser/.ssh/id_rsa [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
to make things simple I tried first with an ssh id that is not protected by passphrase
Mounting with systemd usb connceted drives works just fine.
Has anyone tried this before?
Will systemd mount if sshfs is not installed?
Can someone point me in the right direction?
