ONTAP Hardware

Shared NFS


Have a requirement ,


Need to Create & Map  NFS  volume  to a Unix VM's(J-scape cluster) hosted In 2 data center.


Can we create a shared NFS volume and map to a VM?

Is it possible to access the NFS share from both the servers?





as long as the VMs can ping/reach the NFS LIF on the netapp and export rules are correct.   There's no issue.  


Keep in mind though that things might be slower across the WAN. 

I feel like we could use a bit more detail about what you're trying to do. As Spindle said, you can hook up multiple clients with NFS, as that's the premise of it's design. I did a quick google and it sounds like you want SFTP servers to be able to access the same volume?
