Unity FS question

Hi there,

I currently have an FS for SMB in my Unity300.

I now need to convert that to NFS instead.

Is there a way to convert/copy/migrate the FS inside the Unity itself?

What I am trying to avoid is to copy/backup all of the data to an external storage, and then copy/restore it all back into the Unity.

Thanks.

Re: Unity FS question

In VNX the following command is used to export a CIFS to NFS


server_export server_2 -Protocol nfs -option access=x.x.x.x,rw=x.x.x.x,root=x.x.x.x -comment 'Example Export NFS' /root_vdm_1/path1/path2


But how can it be done in UNITY?


I converted the NAS SERVER into multiprotocol,


uemcli -u admin -p <yourpassword> /net/nas/server -name Myname  set  -mpSharingEnabled yes -unixDirectoryService local


but it did not solve me, I have an access error!


Could you help me, please?

Re: Unity FS question

check your mappings

unlike VNX/Celerra by default there is no (automatic) usermapper active in Unity with multi-protocol

so if you dont have a mapping of the CIFS user to a Unix user then access is denied - same as in VNX

I would highly recommend to read the Unity multi-protocol PDF manual thoroughly before going multi-protocol

Unity is significantly different there from VNX

Re: Unity FS question

just enabling multi-protocol isnt enough

you also need to configure valid mappings for each user

I bet if you - for test purposes - configure a default Unix user you can connect.
