This topic describes how to manage mount targets in the NAS console. The management includes how to create, delete, enable, and disable mount targets. It also includes details about how to view mount targets, and modify the permission group of a mount target.

Add a mount target

You must use a mount target to mount a file system on an ECS instance. You can perform the following steps to add a mount target in the NAS console.
Note

You can add two mount targets for an Apsara File Storage NAS Capacity file system or Apsara File Storage NAS Performance file system either in a classic network or a virtual private cloud (VPC).

  1. Log on to the NAS console.
  2. Choose NAS > File System List.
  3. Find the target file system and click Add Mount Point.
  4. In the Add Mount Point dialog box, configure the required settings.
    Add Mount Target
    Mount Point Type includes VPC and classic network.
    • If you want to create a mount target in a VPC, configure the required settings.
      Parameter Description
      VPC
      Select a VPC. If no VPC is available, create a VPC in the Virtual Private Cloud console.
      Note The VPC and VSwitch you select must be the same as those of the ECS instance on which you mount a file system.
      VSwitch

      Select a VSwitch that is created in the VPC.

      Permission Group
      Select VPC default permission group (allow all) or an existing permission group.
      Note This VPC default permission group is generated for each Alibaba Cloud account, which allows access to the file system through the mount target from all IP addresses of the VPC. For more information about how to create a permission group, see Manage permission groups.
    • If you want to create a mount target in a classic network, configure the required settings.
      Parameter Description
      Permission group
      Select a permission group. If no available permission group exists, create a permission group in the NAS console.
      Note
      • You can create a mount target in a classic network only in a region located in mainland China.
      • You can attach a mount target in a classic network only to an ECS instance.
      • For data security, no default permission group is available for a mount target in a classic network. You need to create a permission group for the mount target in the classic network and add required rules to the permission group. For more information about how to manage permission groups, see Manage permission groups.
      • When creating a mount target in a classic network for the first time, you are required to use RAM to authorize the NAS service to access ECS instances hosted by the logon Alibaba Cloud account. We recommend that you follow the instructions to complete the authorization before creating a mount target in a classic network. For more information, see Why do I need RAM permissions to create a mount point in a classic network.
  5. After you complete the configuration, click OK.
