Getting Started with Azure NetApp Files for NFS Shares

Step 1: Before You Begin

Step 2: Install the Linux File System Agent

Install the Linux File System Agent on the Linux computer where the NFS share can be mounted and accessed.

Step 3: Optional: Mount the NFS Share

Skip this step if you use multiple node backup and the automount feature. Mount the NFS share on the linux computer.

Step 4: Prepare for Your First Backup and Restore

  1. Open the CommCell Console.
  2. Configure a Storage Device.

    You must install the MediaAgent to configure a storage device.

  3. Create a network share client and then create a subclient under the Linux File System Agent of the network share client. Use the following steps to create a network share client:

    Alternately, you can also create a subclient for the local client computer and and make sure that the subclient content is a mounted path. Enter the same path where you mounted the NFS share on the linux computer. For subclient configuration, see Linux File System Agent - Configuration.

    1. On the CommCell Browser, right-click Client Computers, and then click New Client.

      The Add New Client dialog box appears.

    2. Under File System, click NAS/Network Share.
    3. Select the Network Share check box, and then select the Unix check box.
    4. Clear the NDMP check box.
    5. In the Client Name box, enter the non-NDMP network share client name.
    6. In the Host Name box, enter the fully qualified non-NDMP network share client name/IP.
    7. Click OK.

      A pseudo network share client is created on the CommCell Console.

      Create a subclient using the Linux File System Agent created under the network share client and make sure that the subclient content is a mounted path. Enter the same path where you mounted the NFS share on the linux computer.Automount feature is supported if you use multiple access nodes.

      The subclient content must not be in the following format:

      file server:/share

      Note: If you specify the subclient content in the file server:/share format, then you must select multiple access nodes for the subclient.

      For subclient configuration, see Linux File System Agent - Configuration.
