IBM PureData System for Analytics: Mounting NFS on the appliance

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do I mount NFS on IBM PureData Systems for Analytics?

Answer

How to create a mount point on a PDA host
1. As user root list exports on the target NFS server.

[root@nzhost ~]# showmount -e 192.168.2.101
Export list for 192.168.2.101:
/c/jtest  *
/c/backup *



2. Make a directory to create the mount point.
# mkdir /nfs



3. Add the mount point to the etc/fstab file to make the mount persistent across reboots. Specify the hostname of the NFS server, the directory on the exported server, the mount point on the local machine, and any options. (Note soft setting are suggested. Soft will ignore a failed mount and allow the system to boot; hard will not boot on failed mount.) 
# vi /etc/fstab

192.168.2.101:/c/jtest    /nfs            nfs    nolock,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,intr,nfsvers=3,soft    0 0



4. Manually mount NFS.
# mount /nfs 


5. Set permissions and test the mount point with the touch command.
# chown nz:nz /nfs
#
mount 
#
touch /mnt/a.test
