To allow read and write access, the storage must be exported from the system to which it is connected. This makes it possible for the background rendering components on the network to remotely mount the storage system.
NoteSkip this section if you are using BrowseD.
To make the storage system visible over the network:
- Log in to the Lustre system (or the central storage system) as root. The storage filesystem is mounted as /mnt/StorageMedia (on HP Z800 workstations) or /mnt/md0 (on older workstations).
- Open for editing /etc/exports. The file appears, lists the available network shares (filesystems mountable over the network).
- Append in the file a line for the mount point of the storage filesystem: /mnt/StorageMedia *(rw,no_subtree_check,async) or /mnt/md0 *(rw,no_subtree_check,async). Other users on the network will access the storage devices by mounting its network share.
- Save and close the file.
- Activate the new network share for the storage device. Type: exportfs -a The list of network shares is refreshed from the exports file.
- Verify the storage filesystem mount points are listed in the output of exportfs.
