Creating an NFS Share

Creating an NFS Share

After requirement analysis and service planning, you need to configure an NFS share on DeviceManager.


The storage system and application servers can communicate with each other.


  1. Configure a storage system to add it to an LDAP Domain.

    On the navigation bar of the DeviceManager, select > Storage Settings > File Storage Service > Domain Authentication. Input the parameters of the LDAP domain in the LDAP Domain Settings area.


    Before selecting the LDAPS protocol, import the CA certificate file for the LDAP domain server.

  2. Create a file system.

    The file system provides shared space for an NFS share.

    1. On the DeviceManager page, choose > File System.

      The File System page is displayed.

    2. Click Create.

      The Create File System dialog box is displayed.

    3. In the Create File System dialog box, configure planned parameters. Table 2-18 describes related parameters.

      Table 2-18  Create File System parameters


      Planned Value




      1 TB



      Owning Storage Pool



      When creating multiple file systems, the storage system automatically appends a number to each file system name based on the number of file systems to be created for identification. Therefore, the file systems that are created are named FileSystem0000, FileSystem0001, and FileSystem0002 respectively.

    4. Click OK.
  3. Create an NFS share and set the access permission. Such as share the FileSystem001 with a Linux-based host.
    1. On the DeviceManager page, choose > Share.

      The Share page is displayed.

    2. Choose NFS (Linux/UNIX/MAC) > Create.

      The Create NFS Share Wizard: Step 4-1 page is displayed.

    3. In File System, select file system FileSystem0000.
    4. Click Next.

      The Create NFS Share Wizard: Step 4-2 page is displayed.

    5. Click Add.

      The Add Client dialog box is displayed.

    6. Set Type to Network Group and enter ldapgrouplinux in Network Group Name.
    7. Click OK.

      The Create NFS Share Wizard: Step 4-2 page is displayed.

    8. Click Next.

      The Create NFS Share Wizard: Step 4-3 page is displayed.

    9. Click Finish.

      The Create NFS Share Wizard: Step 4-4 page is displayed.

    10. Click Close.
  4. Repeat 3 to share FileSystem0001 and FileSystem0002 respectively with a Mac OS-based host and a VMware host.


    If FileSystem0001 is shared with a Mac OS-based host, enter ldapgroupmac in Network Group Name in 3.f.

    If FileSystem0002 is shared with a VMware ESX-based host, enter in IP Address in 3.f.
