NFS Offboard Storage Device


You can back up the JSA data to an external Network File System (NFS).


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.
