How-To: Configuring NAS Libraries
By Owen Allen-Oracle on Jul 10, 2014
Server Pools in Ops Center let you group multiple virtualization hosts together and migrate guests between them. For guests to be migratable, though, the storage for the guests must be accessible to all of the hosts.
One way that you can make accessible storage is by configuring a NAS library. The library puts the guest storage in an NFS share that can be accessed by the virtualization hosts, enabling migration.
One of our how-tos, the creatively titled Configuring NAS Libraries how-to, walks you through the steps of configuring a NAS library - creating the NFS share on the storage server, then identifying it and creating the library in Ops Center. There's a workflow that explains when to use the several how-tos related to storage library deployment, as well.
