Mounting volumes

Contributors netapp-ivanad

You can use System Manager to mount volumes to a junction in the storage virtual machine (SVM) namespace.

About this task
  • If you mount a volume to a junction path with a language setting that is different from that of the immediate parent volume in the path, NFSv3 clients cannot access some of the files because some characters might not be decoded correctly.

    This issue does not occur if the immediate parent directory is the root volume.

  • You can mount a SnapLock volume only under the root of the SVM.

  • You cannot mount a regular volume under a SnapLock volume.

Steps
  1. Click Storage > Junction Path.

  2. From the drop-down menu in the SVM field, select the SVM on which you want to mount a volume.

  3. Click Mount, and then select the volume that is to be mounted.

  4. If you want to change the default junction name, specify a new name.

  5. Click Browse, and then select the junction path to which you want to mount the volume.

  6. Click OK, and then click Mount.

  7. Verify the new junction path in the Details tab.
