The procedure to enable vServers to access ZFS shares involves the following steps:
To configure a vServer for accessing the storage appliance, you must know the IP address of the vServer in the
Note:For a vServer to be able to access ZFS shares, the
IPoIB-vserver-shared-storagenetwork should have been assigned to the vServer as described in step 16 of Section 9.2.8, "Creating vServers."
Log in to Exalogic Control as a
From the navigation pane on the left, select vDC Management.
Under vDC Accounts, expand the name of your account, and select the vServer for which you want to configure access to the storage appliance.
The vServer dashboard is displayed.
Select the Network tab, and note the IP address of the vServer for the
To mount a ZFS share on the vServer, you must identify the IP address of the storage appliance on the
IPoIB-vserver-shared-storage network, also known as the ipmp4 address.
SSH to the ZFS Storage Appliance as
Run the following command:
storage_node> configuration net interfaces show
From the output of the command, note the ipmp4 address.

Perform the following steps to mount the share you created in the file system of the vServer:
Log in to the ZFS Storage Appliance as
Select the Shares tab, and locate the share you created.
Click the edit entry icon.
The details of the share are displayed.
Click the Protocols tab.
Click the plus (+) button next to NFS Exceptions, and specify the following:
ip_address_of_vserver/32 (in CIDR format)
Access mode: Read/write
Root Access: Selected
Click the Apply button near the upper right corner.
SSH to any compute node on the Exalogic machine.
SSH to the vServer by using the IP address that you noted in the Identifying the IP Address of the vServer section.
Create a directory that will serve as the mount point for the ZFS share:
Mount the share on the vServer:
# mount ipmp4_address_of_storage_appliance:/share_directory mount_point_directory
# mount 172.17.0.9:/export/testshare /root/test1
