Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5, 6, 7, 8
- Is it possible to mount an exFAT filesystem on Red Hat Enterprise Linux?
Red Hat Enterprise Linux does not support exFAT filesystem. Therefore, it won't be able to mount exFAT filesystem in a supported method.
For an unsupported method, you can use the EPEL, nux or another third-party repository. Please research external resources for how to enable this step.
Once that repository is enabled, it's possible to install the required packages.
# yum install -y exfat-utils fuse fuse-exfat # mkfs.exfat /dev/sdc1 mkexfatfs 1.2.7 Creating... done. Flushing... done. File system created successfully.
For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, there is no exFAT support in EPEL yet.
Note: Using exFAT will mean that any service or process that accesses this drive will become unsupported.
