Mounting NFS to MapR Filesystem on a Cluster Node

You can automatically or manually mount a NFS to the MapR Filesystem on a cluster node.

Automatically Mount

Use this procedure to automatically mount NFS to MapR Filesystem on the cluster my.cluster.com at the /mapr mount point.
  1. Set up the mount point by creating the directory.
    sudo mkdir /mapr
  2. Add the following line to /opt/mapr/conf/mapr_fstab:
    <hostname>:/mapr /mapr hard,nolock
    Note: The change to /opt/mapr/conf/mapr_fstab will not take effect until Warden is restarted.
    Every time your system is rebooted, the mount point is automatically reestablished according to the mapr_fstab configuration file.

Manually Mount

Use this procedure to manually mount NFS to MapR Filesystem on the cluster my.cluster.com at the /mapr mount point.
  1. Set up a mount point for an NFS share.
    sudo mkdir /mapr
  2. Mount the cluster via NFS.
    sudo mount -o hard,nolock usa-node01:/mapr /mapr
    Note: When you mount manually from the command line, the mount point does not persist after a reboot.
