Creating the NFS cluster


  • The storage cluster has at least one disk with the Storage role.

To create the NFS storage cluster

Admin panel

  1. On the Infrastructure > Networks screen, make sure that the OSTOR private and NFS traffic types are added to the networks you intend to use.
  2. Open the Storage services > NFS screen, and then click Create NFS storage.
  3. Select one or more nodes to add to the NFS storage cluster, and then click Create.

After the NFS storage is created, you can proceed to create NFS shares.

Command-line interface

Use the following command:

vinfra service nfs cluster create --nodes <node>[:<ip_address>]
--nodes <node>[:<ip_address>]
A comma-separated list of node hostnames or IDs, and optionally their IP addresses

For example, to create the NFS cluster from node node001, run:

# vinfra service nfs cluster create --nodes node001
