VERDE/VERDEOS CIFS Mount Instructions

VERDE/VERDEOS CIFS Mount Instructions

Product Line:  VERDE

To get CIFS storage working with RPM based installation on CentOS 7.x, use the following steps:


  1. Install CentOS 7.x
  2. Install VERDE using RPM build packages
  3. Installed CIFS-UTILS using command yum install cifs-utils
  4. Stop VERDE Services 
  5. Copy /home/vb-verde to CIFS Storage
  6. Execute Mount command - mount -t cifs // /home/vb-verde -o user=test,password=password,uid=1000,gid=1001,forceuid,forcegid,nobrl,rw
  7. Edit /etc/mtab and add the following content : // /home/vb-verde cifs rw,relatime,vers=default,cache=strict,username=test,domain=,uid=1000,forceuid,gid=1001,forcegid,addr=,file_mode=0755,dir_mode=0755,soft,nounix,serverino,mapposix,nobrl,rsize=1048576,wsize=1048576,echo_interval=60,actimeo=1 0 0
  8. Start VERDE Services

This is actually different from the way CIFS storage configuration works with VERDEOS as it automatically creates all VERDE related files on the CIFS storage.

You may need to initiate communications between the VERDEOS server and the CIFS server before the first mount will work.
