Managing NFS exports

You can create NFS exports, view and modify export settings, and delete exports that are no longer needed.

The /ifs directory is the top-level directory for data storage in OneFS, and is also the path defined in the default export. By default, the /ifs export disallows root access, but allows other UNIX clients to mount this directory and any subdirectories beneath it.

We recommend that you modify the default export to limit access only to trusted clients, or to restrict access completely. To help ensure that sensitive data is not compromised, other exports that you create should be lower in the OneFS file hierarchy, and can be protected by access zones or limited to specific clients with either root, read-write, or read-only access, as appropriate.
