Properties for Subclient: Online Help

Specify the NFS clients that can access the point-in-time NFS ObjectStore share.

Enable Versions

Squashing Options

Squashing Type

The squashing type to use for the NFS ObjectStore 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.

Anonymous UID

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.

Anonymous GID

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.
