Just got myself a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and followed the steps to install Home assistant on it and everything is working currently pretty much ok in terms of HA. When I was trying to start to setup a backup solution for HA I started to dig into the USB solution but could not get a usb stick to mount according to the instructions on the page.
On the page its instructed to use command
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/ but the sudo isn’t recognized as command when I logged via Putty to HA (as user root). I then tried the same command without
_sudo_ but that ended into (
mount: mounting /dev/sda1 on /media failed: No such file or directory) When googling a bit I then understood that I probably should log in to the Pi itself (had not done that before) and just fired up Putty again with same ip/port as with HA but when I entered the username as pi and tried entering password as raspberry it’s just saying “Access denied”.
Then googled some more and found out that maybe SSH is not on by default on the Pi (even though I could enter to the HA side) so I added a “ssh” file to the SD card (root folder of it, same where home assistant seemed to be) but still no luck.
Any idea’s where I’m failing here? Could be some very basics as I’m new to the Raspberry & HA.
