5.4. Configuring NFS Client Resources

This example procedure configures five NFS client resources for cluster nfsclust. The procedure for configuring the first two clients only is laid out explicitly.
Use the following procedure to add NFS client resource nfsclient1 to cluster nfsclust.
  1. At the Add a Resource page for cluster nfsclust, click the drop-down box under Select a Resource Type and select NFS client
  2. For Name, enter nfsclient1.
  3. For Target, enter nfsclient1.example.com. This is the first NFS client system.
  4. This Options field species additional client access rights. Specify rw (read-write) in this field. For more information, refer to the General Options section of the exports(5) man page.
  5. Check the Allow Recover checkbox. This indicates that if someone removes the export from the export list, the system will recover the export inline without taking down the NFS service.
  6. Click Submit and accept the verification screen.
Use the following procedure to add NFS client resource nfsclient2 to cluster nfsclust.
  1. At the Add a Resource page for cluster nfsclust, click the drop-down box under Select a Resource Type and select NFS client
  2. For Name, enter nfsclient2.
  3. For Target, enter nfsclient2.example.com. This is the second NFS client system.
  4. Leave the Options field blank.
  5. Check the Allow Recover checkbox.
  6. Click Submit and accept the verification screen.
Use the same procedure to configure the remaining three NFS client resources, using nfsclient3, nfsclient4, and nfsclient5 as the names of the resources and using nfsclient3.example.com, nfsclient4.example.com, and nfsclient5.example.com as the targets.
