D.1 Setting Up Remote NFS for the Filr Shared Storage Location

IMPORTANT:Filr does not support remote NFS with Novell Storage Services (NSS).

To configure remote NFS on a Linux server:

  1. On the Linux server where you want to configure remote NFS to work with Filr, launch YaST2.

  2. In the Network Services section, click NFS Server.

    The NFS Server Configuration dialog box is displayed.

  3. Click Next.

  4. Click Add Directory.

  5. In the Directory to Export field, specify the directory that you want to create, then click OK.

  6. Click Yes to confirm creating the directory.

  7. In the Host Wild Card field, specify the host name for the Filr appliance.

    For example, filr1.novell.com.

  8. In the Options field, change ro to rw (read-only to read-write), then change root_squash to no_root_squash.

  9. Click OK.

  10. (Conditional) If you have a clustered Filr system with multiple Filr appliances, repeat Step 4 through Step 9 for each Filr appliance in the cluster.

  11. Click Finish.

  12. Configure each Filr appliance in the cluster to reference this NFS server, as described in Section 5.4, Installing the Filr Appliance.
