  • 1.  Mounting a NFS share with data on it

    Posted Jul 17, 2012 02:16 PM

    HI

    I was recently moving a blade server between the enclosures and after that I lost access to 2 of shares on NFS mount.

    Networking is fine - confirmed

    I can still see the shares but they shows status inactive

    The question is: I want to re-add stroage - Network File System to map this again. The only concern is that share contains the data. I understand that remounting it does not affect the data. Am I correct saying that ?

    Thanks

    Mariusz

    Just mounting an NFS export doesn't harm your data.

    And I suppose that the host where you mount that export doesn't run a guest which will access the NFS share, now. That makes you even more secure as you are already.

    Thanks AWo, that is what I thought but I wanted to get a second opinion
