Adding an SMB file system

Before mounting the SMB clients to the shares exposed at a NAS Bridge node, you must add one or more SMB file systems.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Click Configuration at the top of the web page.
  2. Click SMB Filesystems.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Type or select all of the configuration values as appropriate for your deployment plan and storage environment:
    • StorageGRID – Select the IP address of the StorageGRID Webscale API Gateway Node.
    • Bucket – A bucket in your StorageGRID Webscale system. If the named bucket does not exist, NAS Bridge creates it.
    • Cache device – Select the cache device you want to use for this file system.
    • Active Directory
    • Share name
    • Owner – A valid user ID in the domain.
    • Group – The group that the user belongs to.
  5. Click Save.
    When the operation completes, the new file system is displayed with a unique ID and a status of READY.

    2. Click Generate Export.
    3. Click the download icon to download the file to your local workstation.
    4. Save the configuration file to a safe location.
      You will need this file to recover the NAS Bridge configuration in case of a failure.
