I am trying to use the NFS repository feature and the repository happens to be on a Windows domain share.  I keep getting Erro mounting NFS location.

Re: NFS repository

Hello,

Are you configuring the repositoy on CLI or GUI? Can you share the repository configuration as you have it now?

Usually the % Error mounting NFS location message is related to permission issues on the NFS side. The Username defined for the NFS transfer requires write privileges on the NFS root.

Are you hable to perform a "show repository " and retrieve the files on that same repository?

Keep in mind the following:

CSCth12958            Bug Details

ACS 5 requirements from the NFS server mounted resource

Symptom:
CLI export-data did not create any file on the NFS file system.

e.g
appl01/acsadmin(config-acs)# export-data user NFSSystem userexp resultfile none
Export process Id is: 1

Conditions:


Workaround:
Make  sure ACS has full access to NFS filesystem, we need NFS file system on  "read-write" and allow "root access" in the permission of NFS system

Regards.

Re: NFS repository

The user account does have write access to the share, which happens to live

on a windows 2008R2 domain, I have not found good directions for my

commands and our unix guy sent me a commands that I can't do because I

don't have permissions under the CISCO commands. Any help would be

wonderful, here is what I have in my config for the repository, on the

server the folder is named Backup, my group maps to the networking area of

the drive.

repository Backup

url nfs://crimson.intra.uwlax.edu:/OLFCabinet/ITS/Networking/

user admin.sand password hash 832a73914ff9baa01670a569f9f32eaf0fe5ae6a

repository acs-upgrade-repo

url disk:

repository backup

url nfs://Crimson/OLFCabinet/ITS/Networking/

Re: NFS repository

Hello,

Thanks for the information. Can you enable "debug backup-restore all" on the ACS CLI and attempt the backup again? Please share the outputs.

Also, execute the "show repository Backup" and verify if you can browse the NFS folder.

Regards.

Re: NFS repository

Hello,

Did you configure the "backup-staging-url" command on the ACS CLI as well?

acs81/acsadmin(config)# backup-staging-url nfs://crimson.intra.uwlax.edu:/OLFCabinet/ITS/Networking/

Refer to the following:

backup-staging-url

To allow you to configure a Network File System (NFS) location that  backup and restore operations will use as a staging area to package and  unpackage backup files, use the backup-staging-url command in Configuration mode.

backup-staging-url word

Syntax Description


word

NFS URL for staging area. Up to 2048 alphanumeric characters. Use nfs://server:path1 .

1 Server is the server name and path refers to /subdir/subsubdir. Remember that a colon (:) is required after the server.

Defaults

No default behavior or values.

Command Modes

Configuration

Usage Guidelines

The URL is NFS only. The format of the command is backup-staging-url nfs://server:path.


Warning Ensure  that you secure your NFS server in such a way that the directory can be  accessed only by the IP address of the ACS server.



Examples

acs/admin(config)# backup-staging-url nfs://loc-filer02a:/vol/local1/private1/jdoe
acs/admin(config)#

Re: NFS repository

Hello,

Can you please confirm that your Windows Server 2008 is configured as described on the following link?

http://www.techietips.net/Creating-an-NFS-share-on-Windows-2008

Also, Please note that ACS is trying to mount as 'root'. That is why we need "root access" on the NFS for the ACS IP address.

Regards.

Re: NFS repository

It is a 2003 server but a 2008 domain, just found this out, are there

directions for that configuration.
