Background Information

You're trying to set up an NFS server and need to know what input values to use.  Specifically, how is the NFS server accessed after it is booted?

 


Answer

You will want to create A-records for your NFS server in DNS Made Easy - you can call it something simple like nfs.yoursite.com.  Set the record to use Dynamic DNS and enter a dummy IP of 1.2.3.4.  Click on the "question mark" in the DDNSID column to get the record number to provide in the inputs below.  The input is called DNS_ID.

Here is an example:

ADDR_TYPE text: private
AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID cred: AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY cred: AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
DNSMADEEASY_PASSWORD cred: dnspwd
DNSMADEEASY_USER cred: dnsusr
DNS_ID text: 3727653 <<<---- put the DDNSID from DNS Made Easy here!
MON_PROCESSES text:nfsd4 nfsd rpc.mountd rpc.statd portmap rpc.rquotad
NFS_BACKUP_BUCKET text: yourbucket (enter the name of one of your S3 buckets)
NFS_BACKUP_INTERVAL text: 30 (this will be the time in minutes)
NFS_DIRS text: /home
OPT_VOLUME_SIZE_GB text: MAX
PRIVATE_SSH_KEY key: default

 

To access your NFS server you do not care or need to worry about the IP address because when the server booted, it registered itself in DNS Made Easy with its IP address.  So any number of clients from anywhere only need to know its hostname:

nfs.mywebsite.com
