|Issue||APP 3.0 - how to create NFS backups to another unix file system|
Assumptions for this example,
noting this can be scaled once you can successfully backup,
to restrict permissions or use a different mount account beyond root:
/backups is the directory share/export on NFS server
permissions are 777 on /backups
10.10.10.5 is the IP address of the NFS server
root account will be used for the NFS backups
root/password1 is the root login credential on the NFS server
Configuring NFS server is different on Solaris and Linux.
If you are using a net appliance, refer to the vendor documentation for exporting a file system from that device.
add to dfstab:
start NFS server (if not already running)
Ensure file system is exported:
If you receive:
STOP: NFS daemons are not running (statd/lockd/mountd/nfsd).
Ensure the file system is exported:
[root@myhost rsawebagent]# exportfs -v
Make a test directory that is world read/write
Mount the test file system (not solaris/linux NFS server specific)
mount -t nfs 10.10.10.5:/backups /test
Check to ensure you can write to the directory
This should create a file with no error. If you receive an error,
If this works, umount the test file system
Now perform the backup in the operations console, same assumptions as above
NOTE: You should not mount the NFS server manually on the appliance.
To setup console backup:
Log into the operations console
Now execute your backup in the Operations console Maintenance->Backups->Create backup
