Export data for client access

To provide client access to data shares, you must create one or more volumes, and the volume must have export policies with at least one rule.

Client export requirements:

  • Linux clients must have a separate mount and a separate mount point for each trunking connection (that is, for each LIF).

  • VMware clients require only a single mount point for an exported volume, with multiple LIFs specified.

    VMware clients require root access in the export policy.

  1. Create an export policy:

    vserver export-policy create -vserver svm_name -policyname policy_name

    The policy name can be up to 256 characters long.

  2. Verify that the export policy was created:

    vserver export-policy show -policyname policy_name


    The following commands create and verify the creation of an export policy named exp1 on the SVM named vs1:

    vs1::> vserver export-policy create -vserver vs1 -policyname exp1

  3. Create an export rule and add it to an existing export policy:

    vserver export-policy rule create -vserver svm_name -policyname policy_name -ruleindex integer -protocol nfs4 -clientmatch { text | "text,text,…" } -rorule security_type -rwrule security_type -superuser security_type -anon user_ID

    The -clientmatch parameter should identify the trunking-capable Linux or VMware clients that will mount the export.

    Learn more about creating export rules.

  4. Create the volume with a junction point:

    volume create -vserver svm_name -volume volume_name -aggregate aggregate_name-size {integer[KB|MB|GB|TB|PB]} -security-style unix -user user_name_or_number -group group_name_or_number -junction-path junction_path -policy export_policy_name

    Learn about creating volumes.

  5. Verify that the volume was created with the desired junction point:

    volume show -vserver svm_name -volume volume_name -junction-path
