Creating File Systems and Mount Targets

Last updated: 2024-01-22 21:58:08


    This document describes how to create a file system and mount target on the file system page in the CFS console.


    Step 1. Sign up for a Tencent Cloud account

    Sign up for a Tencent Cloud account. If you already have a Tencent Cloud account, ignore this step.

    Step 2. Enter the file system page

    Log in to the CFS console and click File System on the left sidebar to enter the file system list page.

    Step 3. Determine the type of file system to create as needed

    Select a type as needed. For more information, see Storage Classes and Performance.

    Step 4. Create a file system

    1. Click Create.
    2. Configure the following information on the Create File System page:
    File System Name
    Customize the name of the file system to create.
    Select the region where the CFS file system will reside.
    Select the AZ where the CFS file system will reside.
    Select the protocol type of the CFS file system, NFS or SMB. NFS is more suitable for Linux and Unix clients and CIFS/SMB for Windows clients. The Turbo series can only be used by private clients and does not allow the selection of file system protocols.
    Permission group
    Each file system must be bound to a permission group. The permission group specifies an allowlist that can access the file system and lists the read and write permissions.
    Specify the VPC of the file system. The file system can be mounted to instances in the VPC for access.
    Storage capacity
    Required only for the Turbo series. The Turbo series is an exclusive cluster and has restrictions on the minimum cluster scale and expansion step. For Standard Turbo, the minimum initial cluster scale is 40 TiB, and the expansion step is 20 TiB. For High-Performance Turbo, the minimum initial cluster scale is 20 TiB, and the expansion step is 10 TiB.
    CCN Instance
    Required only for the Turbo series. Select an existing CCN instance or create a new one. For more information, see Cloud Connect Network.
    IP Range
    Required only for the Turbo series. This parameter allows you to reserve a CIDR block for Turbo related components. Ensure that the selected CIDR block does not conflict with those of other instances on the cloud that need to communicate with Turbo. To ensure sufficient IP addresses in the CIDR block, the mask must have 16 to 24 bits, for example,
    If you already have a tag, you can add it to the new file system here.
    If you do not have a tag, log in to the Tag console to create a tag, and then bind it to the file system. You can also add a tag to the file system after it is created.
    3. Click Next.
    4. Click Create Now to create the file system and mount target.

    Step 5. Get the mount target information

    1. After the file system is created, return to the file system list.
    2. Click the name of the file system to enter its basic information page.
    3. Click Mount Target Info to get the mount commands on Linux and Windows. We recommend you copy the mount command provided by the console for mounting.
