FOG new NFS Storage without node
Could someone please explain to me why does NFS daisy chain mount does not work?
1. FOG Host settings
10.1.1.1:/myimages /nfsmount nfs defaults 0 0
cp -r /images/. /nfsmount- Copy all files (hidden also)
/images *(ro,sync,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,insecure_locks,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=0) /images/dev *(rw,async,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=1) /nfsmount *(ro,sync,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,insecure_locks,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=2) /nfsmount/dev *(rw,async,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=3)
fsidat the end of the line must be incremented
shotmount -e 127.0.01- check NFS mount
- OUTPUT example
/nfsmount/dev * /nfsmount * /images/dev * /images *
2. Webinterface settings
- Menu (Storage) -> (Add Storage Group) -> ‘NFSgroup’ -> Add
- Menu (Storage) -> (Add Storage Node) ->
Storage Node Name = NFSmount Storage Node Description = my secound storage IP Address = 10.10.10.10 Web root = /fog Max Clients = 10 Is Master Node = [x] Replication Bandwidth (Kbps) Storage Group = NFSgroup Image Path = /nfsmount/ FTP Path = /nfsmount/ Snapin Path = /opt/fog/snapins/ SSL Path = /opt/fog/snapins/ssl/ Bitrate Rexmit Hello Interval Interface = eth0 Is Enabled = [x] Is Graph Enabled = [x] Management Username = fogproject Management Password = ****** (copy it from default Storage)
3. Create new Image
- Menu (Images) -> (Create New Image) ->
Image Name = nfsExternTest Image Description Storage Group = nfsgroup Operating System = Windows 10 Image Path = /nfsmount/nfsExternTest (it refresh automatic after you created it, just create and check it again) ...
4. Capture new Image
- Menu (Hosts) -> ‘select your pc’
- in Submenu (Basic Tasks) ->
… but when i change to the default Storage… everything is fine.
Why does NFS daisy chain mount does not work or have i an error in my configuration.
Thanks for your time.

Essentially that will do what you’re looking for.
You do not install the fog software directly. You just need to configure the node to have FTP and NFS.
You will miss a few little details such as disk size and what not.

You can not NFS share an NFS share.
What does this mean:
You have mounted the NFS Share to your FOG server. Then you’re trying to make that share be NFS shared from the FOG Server.
So you’re NFS sharing an NFS share. This is simply not allowed.
If you want the NFS share to work with minimal issue, you would need to setup a new Storage node, that just points to the relevant information for the NAS itself.
So, for example, you would create a new node within the group called:
There’s likely many posts with more direct implication of setting this kind of thing up.
