Mounting a file system

Use this procedure to manually mount a file system. Mounting a formatted file system makes it available to be shared or exported, and thus accessible for use by network clients. This procedure may also be used when an auto-mount of a file system has failed, which can occur in the following situations:
  • The file system was not mounted when the server was shut down.
  • The command line interface was used to disable auto-mounting.
  • A storage system failure caused the server to restart.

You can use the NAS Manager to mount a file system.


  1. Navigate to Home Storage Management File Systems to display a list of all file systems.

  2. Select the check box next to the label of the file system to be mounted.

  3. If the file system is unmounted, click mount.
