System Manager Classic

Configure and verify NFS client access (Add an NFS volume to an NFS-enabled SVM)

Contributors NetAppZacharyWambold

When you are ready, you can give select clients access to the share by setting UNIX file permissions on a UNIX administration host and adding an export rule in System Manager. Then you should test that the affected users or groups can access the volume.

  1. Decide which clients and users or groups will be given access to the share.

  2. On a UNIX administration host, use the root user to set UNIX ownership and permissions on the volume.

  3. In System Manager, add rules to the export policy to permit NFS clients to access the share.

    1. Select the storage virtual machine (SVM), and click SVM Settings.

    2. In the Policies pane, click Export Policies.

    3. Select the export policy with the same name as the volume.

    4. In the Export Rules tab, click Add, and specify a set of clients.

    5. Select 2 for the Rule Index so that this rule executes after the rule that allows access to the administration host.

    6. Select NFSv3.

    7. Specify the access details that you want, and click OK.

      You can give full read/write access to clients by typing the subnet as the Client Specification, and selecting all the access check boxes except Allow Superuser Access.

      This screenshot is described by the preceding text.
  4. On a UNIX client, log in as one of the users who now has access to the volume, and verify that you can mount the volume and create a file.
