3.2. Importing a GNBD on a Client

The gnbd.ko kernel module must be loaded on a node before it can import GNBDs. When GNBDs are imported, device nodes are created for them in /dev/gnbd/ with the name assigned when they were exported.

Usage

gnbd_import -i Server
Server
Specifies a GNBD server by hostname or IP address from which to import GNBDs. All GNBDs exported from the server are imported on the client running this command.

Example

This example imports all GNBDs from the server named nodeA.
gnbd_import -i nodeA
