Create an SVM for S3
Although S3 can coexist in an SVM with other protocols, you might want to create a new SVM to isolate the namespace and workload.
If you are only providing S3 object storage from this SVM, the S3 server does not require any DNS configuration. However, you might want to configure DNS on the SVM if other protocols are used.
Verify that S3 is licensed on your cluster:
system license show -package s3
If it is not, contact your sales representative.
Create an SVM:
vserver create -vserver svm_name -rootvolume root_volume_name -aggregate aggregate_name -rootvolume-security-style unix -language C.UTF-8 -ipspace ipspace_name
Use the UNIX setting for the
Use the default C.UTF-8
ipspacesetting is optional.
Verify the configuration and status of the newly created SVM:
vserver show -vserver svm_name
Vserver Operational Statefield must display the
runningstate. If it displays the
initializingstate, it means that some intermediate operation such as root volume creation failed, and you must delete the SVM and re-create it.
The following command creates an SVM for data access in the IPspace ipspaceA:
cluster-1::> vserver create -vserver svm1.example.com -rootvolume root_svm1 -aggregate aggr1 -rootvolume-security-style unix -language C.UTF-8 -ipspace ipspaceA [Job 2059] Job succeeded: Vserver creation completed
The following command shows that an SVM was created with a root volume of 1 GB, and it was started automatically and is in
running state. The root volume has a default export policy that does not include any rules, so the root volume is not exported upon creation. By default, the vsadmin user account is created and is in the
locked state. The vsadmin role is assigned to the default vsadmin user account.
