Some operations, like backup/restore and data loading, require you to either read or write large files. You can mount a NAS (network attached storage) file system for these operations.
This procedure shows you how to mount a NAS file system for storing or accessing large files. The file system will be mounted at the same location on each node in the cluster automatically. When the cluster is restarted, the file system will be mounted again automatically, if it can be found.
When supplying a directory for writing or reading a backup, you can specify the mountpoint as the directory to use. Likewise, you can stage data there for loading.
