Cannot open access to console, the root account is locked
I have a Debian 11 that i was using LVM for data only, i did the following commands:
mount /dev/srv-vg/lv-data /mnt/data vi /etc/fstab /dev/srv-vg/lv-data /mnt/data ext4 defaults 0 0
The mount command worked pretty well, the folder works just fine but after adding the fstab line when i reboot i get the following errors:
[FAILED] Failed to mount /mnt/data [DEPEND] Dependency failed for Local File Systems Cannot open access to console, the root account is locked Press ENTER to continue
When i press enter, it just says the same message again (Root account is locked.)
Can someone help me?
Edit: Fixed typo.
Boot from external hard disk or USB stick, change back
/etc/fstab. Alternatively, take out hard disk, attach it to another computer, mount, edit
And I second the comment to add
nofail for non-essential mounts.
