4.2. Mounting NFS Exports on MacOS

You can mount an NFS export created in Virtuozzo Storage like any other directory exported via NFS. You will need the share hostname (or IP address) and the volume identifier. You can mount the export either via a command-line prompt or in Finder:

  • In the command-line prompt, run the following command:

    # mount -t nfs -o vers=4.0 -o sec=krb5 share1.example.com:/0200000000000002/export1 /mnt/nfs
    

    where:

    • -o vers=4.0 is the NFS version to use.
    • -o sec=krb5 is required if your service provider uses Kerberos authentication in NFS shares.
    • share1.example.com is the share hostname. You can also use IP addresses.
    • /0200000000000002/export1 is the path to export.
    • /mnt/nfs is an existing local directory to mount the export to.
  • In Finder, do the following:

    1. Set the NFS version to 4.0. To do this, add the nfs.client.mount.options = vers=4.0 line to the /etc/nfs.conf file.

    2. In the Finder > Go > Connect to server window, specify nfs://share1.example.com:/0200000000000002/export1

      where:

      • share1.example.com is the share hostname. You can also use IP addresses.
      • /0200000000000002/export1 is the path to export.
    3. Click Connect.

      The Finder will mount the export to /Volumes/0200000000000002/export1.
