Adding and removing mount configuration
Once a filesystem has been created (on the hard disk, floppy disk,
or CD-ROM) or exported from a remote server,
you must add the mount information to the system
so that you can then mount and use the filesystem.
To add filesystem mount information,
This adds the filesystem mount configuration to the
/etc/vfstab file and adds the filesystem
to the Filesystem Manager list.
Mount Add Mount Configuration
then select Local or Remote.
Select the appropriate filesystem:
Select the filesystem device file from the pop-up list on the local system.
If the device file does not appear in the list,
enter the correct device in the ``Device File'' field.
Select the ``Remote Filesystem Type''. Choose the
``Remote Host'' and ``Remote Directory''
by entering the names or using the Select buttons.
Specify the filesystem parameters.
``Modifying filesystem mount configuration''.
Remote administration (using the
Host Open Host
selection) requires remote access permission on the machine
you plan to administer. The remote machine must recognize the
account being used to administer users on the local machine. See
``Setting remote access for a user''
for more information. As on the local machine, non-root
accounts require the Administer Filesystems
authorization to run the
Filesystem Manager. See
for more information.
If you selected ``Now'' to mount the filesystem immediately,
the Mount icon appears to the left of the filesystem name
indicating that the filesystem is mounted.
To remove the mount configuration for a filesystem, select
Mount Remove Mount Configuration
and click on Yes at the prompt.
This removes the mount information from the /etc/vfstab
file and the filesystem no longer appears in the
Filesystem Manager list.
If the filesystem is mounted, removing the mount configuration
also unmounts the filesystem.
