- You have assigned a DNS or domain to your server.
If you have assigned a domain to the server, you must be able to access the domain on the Internet.
- You have set the access rights for the desired server in the detail view of the shared storage.
- You have downloaded the Kerberos key.
- You wrote down the NFS path.
How to integrate shared storage on your server:
- Make sure that the packages krb5 and nfs are installed. To install these packages, enter the following command:
apt-get install nfs-common krb5-user
- To enable the NEED_GSSD parameter, enter the yes option in /etc/default/nfs-common in the NEED_GSSD line.
- Open the zipped Kerberos key file.
- Copy the files krb5.conf and krb5.keytab.
- Insert the files into the /etc folder.
If you are using a local computer with a Windows operating system, you can quickly and conveniently transfer the files using the WinSCP program. WinSCP is a graphical open-source SFTP and FTP client for Windows. Click here to download this program.
- To start the necessary services manually, enter the following commands:
service nfs-common restart
initctl restart portmap
initctl start gssd
- Create the directory under which the storage is to be integrated:
To integrate multiple shared storages, create another directory (e.g. /mnt/nfs2, etc.). Then, perform the next step for each shared storage.
- Mount the shared storage with the option sec=krb5. For this, you need the NFS path.
mount -o sec=krb5 vid12345.nas1.lan:/vid12345 /mnt/nfs
The shared storage will be mounted.
