Add a mount point

Last Updated: May 11, 2018

After creating a file system, you must add a mount point for the file system before you can mount the file system on computing nodes (such as ECS instance, E-HPC, and Container Service).

NAS supports two types of mount points: VPC and Classic Network.

Add a mount point in a VPC

To add a mount point in a VPC, follow these steps.

  1. Log on to the NAS console.

  2. On the File Systems page, click Add Mount Point under the file system to be configured.

  3. In the Add Mount Point dialog box, select VPC for Mount Point Type, and then select the corresponding VPC and VSwitch.

  4. In the Permission Group drop-down box, select the permission group for the mount point.

    Note: You can now select VPC Default Permission Group to allow all IP addresses in the same VPC to access the file system through the mount point.

Add a mount point in a classic network

Only ECS instances can use mount points in classic networks. To add a mount point in a classic network, follow these steps.

  1. Log on to the NAS console.

  2. On the File Systems page, click Add Mount Point under the file system to be configured.

  3. In the Add Mount Point dialog box, select Classic network for Mount Point Type.

  4. In the Permission Group drop-down box, select the permission group for the mount point.

    Note:

    • For a classic network mount point, no default permission group is provided. When using this for the first time, you must go to the Permission Group page to create a permission group in a classic network, and add rules for the permission group. For more information, see How to use permission group.

    • When adding a mount point in a classic network for the first time, you are requested to authorize NAS through RAM to access the query interface of your ECS instance. Follow the instructions to complete the authorization, then try creating the mount point in the classic network again. For more information, see Why RAM authorization is required.
