I formatted a USB drive on my mac with exfat settings and then put it into the CentOS 7 server. When trying to mount I got the error
mount: unknown filesystem type ‘exfat’
So we need to install exfat drivers so I can mount the partition.
I tried to install exfat, but it’s not in the default CentOS repository. I had to install nux-desktop repo.
yum -y install http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el7/x86_64/nux-dextop-release-0-5.el7.nux.noarch.rpm
Next, we can install the needed packages.
yum -y install fuse-exfat exfat-utils
Now I can mount that USB drive formatted with exfat FS on my OSX laptop.
mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb
We’re good to go, I can get my files now.
