As long as both linux and netapp box have a working network connection, and both machines can ping each other, you're set to go (if you choose NFS). Configure as described above.

Multipathing is not used with NFS, so you can keep things simple.

Network interface bonding is not needed for this to work, you can configure this later. You do need a good understanding on networking to configure this correctly on your switches and on netapp/linux or it will not work.

Do you have any specific questions ? Most of these things can be found in the manuals that are available from Netapp, and they describe this much better than we can here.

The easiest way is probably use NFS, provided your Netapp has an NFS license.

On the Netapp, you need to create a volume and create an NFS share on this volume.
(read the Netapp docs if you don't know how to perform these tasks).
On the Linux box, you need to mount the nfs share
 (see man mount or man fstab)

Hi

You need to export your filesystem on Netapp that you want to share through NFS

http://www.wafl.co.uk/exportfs/

Then you need to mount it with

mount -t nfs netappserver:/exported/path /mountpoint

If you want it persistent you can add it to /etc/fstab

You can download all the Netapp manuals from support.netapp.com. It is not allowed to put these on the internet.

You need an account to access this site and this requires a valid support contract.
