Sharing a folder via NFS

Syneto Storage uses versions v3 and v4 of NFS to share folders, but we recommend using v3. To view the hosts allowed to access a folder in NFS go to Data management > Folders / Virtual Disks, select the folder from the tree view and then navigate to the NFS share tab. (You can also view all the folders that allow sharing in the Sharing > NFS shares menu.)



 To allow access to a host for accessing the folder via NFS click the Allow new host button.


Hostname represents the IP or hostname that will access the share. Access type can be Read/Write or Read-Only. By enabling root access you will allow the user connecting to that share to control it as user root.

NFS sharing can be globally enabled/disabled from the Sharing > Shares > NFS section using the ON-OFF switch.
