The mount must be a read/write access.

I've tried mount a hard drive with ntfs partion with the following commands in Xen server 7.0 :

fdisk -l 


Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdc1   *        2048   976769023   488383488    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

Tried to mount NTFS

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /mnt/


mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs-3g'

PS.: I have based in this topic

I've Centos installed on a 32 bit system

  • Did you install the ntfs-3g package? You should also first create a mountpoint under /mnt and point to that in your mount command – inaki Sep 5 '16 at 16:03
