If any NFS mounts exist you will see it here, but since this is a new installation most likely you don't have one.
- Config => File systems => Access nfs volume
When mounting network File systems from other machines in a network; it can be a small directory or an entire volume.
- will be the name of the machine serving the file system, followed by the remote directory.
- For example, you might see a value of machinex: /var/spool/mail where machinex is the machine serving the directory and /var/spool/mail is the directory being served.
- FsType — will always be "nfs."
Adding NFS Mounts
Let's add an nfs mount so you can see how it is done:
- On the NFS volume screen, select Add
- Server: The hostname of the machine on which the desired filesystem is located. For example, station1.onetraining.net
- Volume: The file system you wish to add. For example, /usr/engineering /designs.
- Mount point: The directory in your system from which you want the remote file system to be accessible. For example, /mnt/designs.
- Once you have entered the information, select Accept.
Note: The mount point is the physical directory where you actually transport it. If your mountings are permanent, create directories for that purpose and secure it.
The options tab is used to set the appropriate permissions and control how the NFS mount point will be accessed. The NFS option tells the mounting point how it is going to be mounted.
That's it. Linuxconf will update your /etc/fstab file accordingly. Please read the help file on the Volume specification screen and see the mount man page for more information.
