Advanced network configuration using mount options

Content Software for File CLI Reference

Part Number

When using a stateless client, it is possible to alter and control many different networking options, such as:

  • Virtual functions.
  • IPs.
  • Gateway (in case the client is on a different subnet).
  • Physical network devices (for performance and HA).
  • UDP mode.

Use -o net=<netdev> mount option with the various modifiers as described below.

<netdev> is either the name, MAC address, or PCI address of the physical network device (can be a bond device) to allocate for the client.

Note: When using wekafs mounts, both clients and backends should use the same type of networking technology (either IB or Ethernet).
