Managing NFS aliases

You can create NFS aliases to simplify exports that clients connect to. An NFS alias maps an absolute directory path to a simple directory path.

For example, suppose you created an NFS export to /ifs/data/hq/home/archive/first-quarter/finance. You could create the alias /finance1 to map to that directory path.

NFS aliases can be created in any access zone, including the System zone.
