After you configure the IP resources in SDDC Manager, configure NFS resources on the Unity XT x80 storage array. SDDC Manager consumes the NFS resources during the workload domain bring-up process. First configure the NAS server and then create the NFS share.
Configure the NAS server
The NAS server manages file resources on the Unity XT x80. To create the NAS server, follow these steps:
- In the Unity Unisphere UI:
- Under Storage, click File.
- Click NAS Servers, and then click the plus sign (+).
- Continue through the wizard, specifying the settings that are unique to your environment, and pay attention to the following items:
- On the Interface page, specify an IP address within the VLAN of the NFS network pool that you created earlier in SDDC Manager, as shown in the following figure:
Figure 13. Configuring the NAS server address
- On the Sharing Protocols page, select Linux/Unix shares (NFS).
Create the shared file system as follows:
- In the Unity Unisphere UI, click File Systems and click the plus sign (+).
- On the Protocol page, select Linux/Unix Shares (NFS), select the NAS Server that you previously created, and then click Next.
- Specify the options for Name and click Next.
- On the Shares page, select NFS Share (Linux/Unix), specify a share name, and then click Next.
Make note of the NFS share path for later use in configuring the NFS share from within SDDC Manager.
- On the Access page:
- Set Default Access to Read/Write, allow Root.
- Click the plus sign (+) to configure access.
- Under Configure Access, at customize access for the following hosts, add the IP addresses that you previously assigned to the NFS network pool in Create the IP resource pool.
- Continue with the wizard and specify the options for the Snapshot and Replication pages.
- At the Summary page, click Finish.
