The problem is that we need to create a file system after which we can mount the block device in the required directory.
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/xvdf, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so.
1. Execute the following command to get the list of all block devices lsblk --output NAME,TYPE,SIZE,FSTYPE,MOUNTPOINT,UUID,LABEL 2. Create a directory to mount the block device mkdir -p /test/directory 3. Create a file system mkfs -t ext4 /dev/xvdf 4. Mount the block device mount /dev/xvdf /test/directory 5. Unmount the block device (for testing) umount /dev/xvdf
