Huh? Or is that something specific to your SAN?

[MERGED] vPower NFS as a NFS client?

Veeam Logoby Tobias_Elfstrom » Mon Jan 21, 2013 9:56 am

Hello.
Is there any way to use the vPower NFS implementation as a NFS client on the Windows platform that it is running on? E.i. to mount a NFS share on the server running the vPower NFS server.

The reason for my question is that the vPower NFS implementation on Windows prevents installation of other NFS Client, such as the Microsoft one, since it makes use of the portmap service for example.

Br Tobias.

[MERGED] vPower NFS and NFS Server together

Veeam Logoby lnmn249 » Sun Jul 28, 2013 6:12 pm

I would like to run an NFS server on a standalone machine that is already configured as a backup repository with vPower NFS enabled. I want the nfs server so I can utilize the disk space as an extra vsphere datastore.

I've had problems getting them to work simultaneously. The issues seems to be port assignment. Has anyone configured a machine this way and if so how was it done and what ports were used.

Hi Dale, it is not possible to use vPower NFS server and Windows NFS server on the same machine, because of the port conflicted you've mentioned.

Hi.

I haven't done something like that myself, but if you don't find a better solution you can try using iscsi instead of nfs.
This will be more complex and less efficient if you just need if for ISO files for example, but still an optional possible workaround.

You could also just configure the vPower NFS server to point as the space you desire and use it. In other words, if the Windows server has a E: drive that has 1TB of space that you want to share you can create a folder E:\vPowerNFS, and then configure vPower NFS to use this folder. Anything you manually place in that folder will be automatically shared out. I have many clients that use vPowerNFS as a common location to store ISO's and other data which needs to be shared.

[MERGED] How to share a veeam physical disk to linux physica

Veeam Logoby marco.morzenti » Fri Sep 27, 2013 8:53 am

Scenario:
Infrastracture
n. 1 Vmware 5.1 cluster (5 mode)
n. 1 Oracle phisical cluster (3 node)
n. 1 HP 3PAR 7200 Storage shared between Oracle and Vmware
Backup:
n. 1 Veeam physical machine
n. 1 HP MSA2000 mapped on Veeam machine
n. 1 HP MSL4048

Backup infrastructure:
MSA2000 have 2 LUN and both are mapped on Veeam Machine;
First LUN are used to Vmware backup;
Second LUN must be visible and usable on the Oracle cluster;

Veeam backup instal "vPower NFS", consequently it is not possible to install "windows NFS service".
How can I export the second disc on the Oracle cluster?

Regards

[MERGED] NfsDatastore as NFS share ?

Veeam Logoby EBoucq » Wed Sep 17, 2014 4:53 pm

Hi,

I wanted to install Windows NFS service on my Veeam Server.
Instead, can I use the NfsDatastore folder to grant access to an Unix or Linux client (to write in the directory) ?

Thanks.

Hi, Eric. Yes, you can do that. I don't believe it has any permissions system though. Thanks!

Gostev,
I just did a test but unfortunately the unix client doesn't see any NFS share on my Veeam server. Any documentation I could find about this ?
Thanks !

It's a regular NFS v3 server. Try a different NFS client from a different computer. Thanks!

Hi,

I tried from another unix server (client) using NFS v3. It can't see any shared folder on the veeam server.
It should be NfsDatastore right ?
I don't feel like we're talking about the same thing as Windows NFS here....
Thanks.

Hi Gostev,

I finally worked this out. I thought a showmount would return the nfs share. I was wrong.
Plus I had no idea I had to use the string "/VeeamBackup" in the path since the share on the Veeam server is named NfsDatastore.
I guess I'm little confused but now it's working and that's what matters :-)
Thanks for your time !
