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

  1. Log on to the NAS console.
  2. Click Add Mount Point on the right of the file system to which you want to add a mount point.

  3. In the Add Mount Point dialog box, select VPC for Mount Point Type.
  4. Select the corresponding VPC, VSwitch, and Permission Group.

    Note You can select VPC default permission group (allow all) to allow all IP addresses in the same VPC to access the file system through the mount point.
  5. Click OK.

Add a mount point in a classic network

  1. Log on to the NAS console.
  2. Click Add Mount Point on the right of the file system to which you want to add a mount point .
  3. In the Add Mount Point dialog box, select Classic network for Mount Point Type, and select the permission group in the Permission Group drop-down box.

    Note
    • Currently, only ECS instances can use mount points in classic networks.
    • 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 Use permission groups.
    • 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 do I need RAM permissions to create a mount point in a classic network.
  4. Click OK.

After adding a VPC or classic network mount point for a file system, hover your mouse over the mount address of the file system to view the mount command.
