Configuring a Mount Point for a Secondary HA Host
On your existing secondary high-availability (HA) host, you must configure an NFS mount point for the alternative JSA backup file location.
If you use NFS or a Windows share for offboard storage, your system can lock and cause an outage. This practice is not supported by JSA.
If you choose to use NFS anyway, NFS can be used only for daily
backup data, such as the
/store/ backup directory. You cannot use NFS for storing active data, which includes
the PostgreSQL and ariel databases. If you do use NFS, it might cause
database corruption or performance issues.
- Using SSH, log in to the JSA secondary HA host as the root user:
- Create a backup file location that matches the backup
file location on your primary HA host. The default
location for JSA backups is

Do not create your new backup location under the
/storefile system. Use a subdirectory, such as
- Start the NFS services by typing the following commands:
systemctl enable rpcbind
systemctl start rpcbind
- Add the following line to the
/etc/fstabfile: hostname:shared_directory backup location nfs soft,intr,rw,clientaddr=IP address 0 0
- Mount the new JSA backup
file location by typing the following command:
mount backup location
