Enabling the NFS Service

Enabling the NFS Service

Before configuring an NFS share, enable the NFS service for clients to access the NFS share. The storage system supports NFSv3 and NFSv4.


The license for NFS protocol has been imported and activated.


The system supports NFSv3 and NFSv4.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Settings > Storage Settings > File Storage Service > NFS Service.
  3. Enable the NFS service according to the protocol version used when the host mounts NFS share.

    • If the host needs to use NFSv3 to mount shares, select Enable NFSv3.
    • If host uses NFSv4 to mount share, execute the following steps.
      1. Click Advanced and select Enable NFSv4.
      2. After NFSv4 has been enabled, enter the storage domain name in Domain Name.
      • NFSv4 adopts the user+domain name mapping mechanism, enhancing the security of clients' access to shared resources. It is recommended that host use this version to mount share.
      • In non-domain or LDAP environment, enter the default domain name localdomain.
      • In an NIS environment, the entered information must be consistent with domain in the /etc/idmapd.conf file on the Linux client that accesses shares. It is recommended that both the two be the domain name of the NIS domain.
      • The domain name must be no longer than 64 characters.
      • To disable NFS service, do not select Enable NFSv3/NFSv4.

  4. Click Save.

    The Success dialog box is displayed indicating that the operation succeeded.

  5. Click OK.
