This document covers the steps to set up your ObjectiveFS filesystem with Amazon S3 using S3 keys. For ObjectiveFS versions older than 7.0, see this doc.
Filesystemsection on your profile page.
$ sudo mount.objectivefs config s3:// Creating config for Amazon in /etc/objectivefs.env Enter ObjectiveFS license: <your ObjectiveFS license> Enter Access Key Id: <your S3 access key> Enter Secret Access Key: <your S3 secret key> Enter Default Region (optional): <your S3 region, e.g. eu-west-1>
Create your filesystem (one-time only)
$ sudo mount.objectivefs create <your filesystem name> Passphrase (for s3://<filesystem>): <your passphrase> Verify passphrase (for s3://<filesystem>): <your passphrase>
Mount your filesystem
Mount your filesystem on an existing empty directory, e.g.
/ofs. The ObjectiveFS process will run in the background.
The command below uses the
mt mount options.
$ sudo mount.objectivefs -omkdir,mt <your filesystem name> /ofs Passphrase (for s3://<filesystem>): <your passphrase>
[Optional] Multi-server setup
Mount this filesystem on as many servers as you wish by running steps 1 and 3 on each server after installing ObjectiveFS. Each server can read and write to the same filesystem at the same time.
