    • How to Create a Storage Volume and Mount on Clients (Next step after Installing Gluster Storage Platform)
    • Overview Create a volume and specify export protocol(s): • GlusterFS Native: For Linux only (install client software on your system) • NFS: For Linux or Unix • CIFS: For Windows Mount created volume on clients. 2
    • Volume Manager Tab Navigate to the Volume Manager tab Click Create Volume 3
    • Create Volume Enter Volume name Select Volume type • None: Files will be distributed across servers • Mirror: Each file written synchronously on two servers. (Need multiples of 2 servers) • Stripe*: File blocks spread across 4 servers. (Need multiples of 4 servers). *Gluster recommends stripe for very limited use cases. Contact us for details. Select Transport type Select Storage Servers Select export protocols • For CIFS: Specify a username and password Click Create Volume 4
    • Volume Manager Tab The Volume has been created and is accessible to clients. You can start, stop, delete, or create another volume from this screen. 5
    • Mounting a Volume with GlusterFS Native First install the GlusterFS client module on each client The client software is available at www.gluster.org/download and installs as a user space application. Then as a root user, run the following command: mount -t glusterfs [StorageNodeIP]:[VolumeName]-tcp [mountpoint] 6
    • Mounting a Volume with NFS As a root user, run the following command: mount -t nfs [StorageNodeIP]:/nfs/[VolumeName] [mountpoint] Note: To have the volume mounted every time on boot automatically, add the mount command to /etc/fstab 7
    • To Mount as CIFS From a Windows client machine: • Open “Computer” then “Network”. • Double click on the storage node that you want to connect. • The CIFS exported volume will appear. Double click on it. • Enter username and password specified during volume creation, then connect. Note: You can also map this volume to a network drive and tell Windows to reconnect automatically on login. 8
    • Congratulations, You’re Done! Gluster volumes are fully POSIX compliant. Applications can access mounted Gluster volumes without any changes. ` 9
