Applies to: SynetoOS 4.x

SynetoOS 4 supports datastores sharing using NFS protocol to other platforms than VMware ESXi. 

To configure it, please follow the steps below:

1. Go to the Datastores page and Create a New Datastore, choose a name and the Workload type (block size)

2. Login to the SynetoOS appliance using SSH as root, If the Syneto shell is active, exit the shell by running the command un s (unsupported shell)

ssh admin@SynetoVM

un s

3. List all datastores

zfs list

4. Remember the path of the datastore to share in NFS and run the command below

zfs set sharenfs=rw=@IP/CIDR,root=@IP/CIDR [datastore path]

Remember that the path does not start with a slash.
To share to more than one server, use the following command:

zfs set sharenfs=rw=@IP/CIDR,root=@IP/CIDR,rw=@IP/CIDR,root=@IP/CIDR [datastore path]

Example how to share a datastore via NFS to two different servers:

zfs set sharenfs=rw=@,root=@,rw=@,root=@ flash/datastores/Demo
