Now to make that info useful. I have back-up disks mount noexec and then
unmount as part of the script. BUT I've had a couple of instances of the

disk, it can only run if the disk mounts, surely. So now is the time to
check it all out
Yes that sounds correct: if the mount didn't happen, the script isn't
there, so it won't run.

Almost all going well.   Thanks Jonathan.

I have an issue trying to run an alias. I get 'alias' not found error. So I sym-linked my .bashrc into /root. Same result.

If I su, get # prompt and 'alias' works. Typing alias gets list as expected. exit. Try su -c and same results. exit.

su -c "alias" - not found.

So where do I put .bashrc for a su - "alias" to work, please.

Should I have started a new topic?
