Editing the Properties of the NFS ObjectStore

You can edit the properties of the NFS ObjectStore that you created.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Manage > Infrastructure.

    The Infrastructure page appears.

  2. Click the Network stores tile.

    The Network stores page appears.

  3. In the Network store column, click the network store that you want to edit.

    The network store properties page appears.

  4. In the General section, click Edit.

    The Configure properties dialog box appears.

    In the NFS clients box, type the IP address of all client computers that can access the NFS ObjectStore.

    Separate multiple IP addresses with a comma (,). By default, the NFS clients box has a value of 0.0.0.0, which indicates that the share is accessible by any client.

  5. From the Access Type list, select whether to give read access or read/write access.

    You can give Read/Write access or only give Read access to the files in the share.

  6. From the Squash Type list, select the squashing type to use for the share.

    The squashing type to use for the share. The default is ROOT_SQUASH.

    Valid values are:

    • ROOT_SQUASH: Map the root user on the NFS client to an anonymous user/group that has limited privileges. This prevents a root client user from having total control of the NFS ObjectStore share.
    • ROOT_ID_SQUASH: Map the root user on the NFS client to an anonymous user/group that has limited privileges and map a non-root user that is part of the root user's group to an anonymous group ID so that the user is treated as a non-root user.

      A root user ID is 0. A root user group ID is 0. This squashing type performs the following operations:

      • Maps a user ID of 0 to an anonymous user ID.
      • Maps a group ID of 0 to an anonymous group ID.
      • Maps a group ID of 0 in an alternative group to an anonymous group ID.

        For example, if USER1 has the root user group (group ID 0), then the user is mapped to an anonymous group ID and is treated as USER1 (instead of having root privileges).

    • ALL_SQUASH: Map all the users on the NFS client to an anonymous user/group that has limited privileges.
    • NO_ROOT_SQUASH: A root user account on the NFS client can access the share as a root user.

    You can also define a group ID and a user ID for squashing.

    If you use squashing, then the group ID is the group ID that the software uses for mapping. This value can be greater than 0.

    If you use squashing, then the user ID is the user ID that the software uses for mapping. This value can be greater than 0.

  7. In the anon GID box, type the group ID the software uses for squashing.
  8. If you use squashing, then the group ID is the anonymous group ID that the software uses for mapping. This value can be greater than 0.
  9. In the anon UID box, type the user ID the software uses for squashing.
  10. If you use squashing, then the user ID is the anonymous user ID that the software uses for mapping. This value can be greater than 0.
  11. Click Save.
