Using NFS with Ambari 2.1 and above

avatar

Before Ambari 2.1, we had to manager the NFS Gateway separately. Now it's "kind of" part of the Ambari process. At least it shows up in Ambari (HDFS Summary page) as installed and running.

But I don't see a away to control the bind, etc... And there aren't any processes running like that. So what is the process for using NFS with Ambari 2.1+?

Same experience for me. Ambari went as far as getting things up and running, but, mounting all shares was up to me.

Regarding "you won't see any new mount points":

It's important to distinguish between the NFS Gateway service and the NFS client, even though they can both be on the same machine. NFS services export mountpoints, ie make them available for clients to mount. NFS clients mount them and make use of them as filesystems. It is true that for some applications, it would be convenient to have the NFS mountpoint mounted on the cluster nodes, but this is a Client functionality, not part of Gateway setup. And for many other applications, it is more important to have the NFS mountpoint available for use by other hosts outside the Hadoop cluster -- which can't be managed by Ambari.
