Configure a StorNext LAN Client on Linux

To configure a StorNext client as a StorNext LAN client, edit mount options in the /etc/fstab file.

  1. Stop the StorNext client. At the command prompt, type:

    /etc/init.d/cvfs stop
  2. Configure the client to mount a file system as a LAN client. To do this, edit the /etc/fstab file so that it contains the following line:

    <file_system> <mount_point> cvfs rw,diskproxy=client 0 0

    where <file_system> is the name of the StorNext file system and <mount_point> is the directory path where the file system is mounted.

  3. Start the StorNext client. At the command prompt, type:

    /etc/init.d/cvfs start
