Generic NAS systems do not have API integration with Igneous, thus requires manual intervention to allow backups to be performed. For each NFS export that will need to be backed up, you will need to add the no_root_squash parameter to the export options. It is recommended to only add this option to the export targeting Igneous source IP addresses so that only Igneous is capable of reading or writing to the export as the root user.
  1. Enter the Hostname that serves the NFS end point.
