This document covers the steps to set up your ObjectiveFS filesystem for ObjectiveFS versions older than 7.0. For versions 7.0 and newer, see this doc.
Filesystemsection on your profile page
a. Using Keys
b. Using IAM Role
$ sudo mount.objectivefs config Enter ObjectiveFS license: <your ObjectiveFS license> Enter Access Key Id: <your access key> Enter Secret Access Key: <your secret key> Enter Default Region (optional): <your region, e.g. eu-west-1>
Note: This will use the default AWS metadata host at 169.254.169.254
$ sudo mount.objectivefs config -i Enter ObjectiveFS license: <your ObjectiveFS license> Enter Metadata Host [169.254.169.254]: <press enter> 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 <filesystem>): <your passphrase> Verify passphrase (for <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.
$ sudo mkdir /ofs $ sudo mount.objectivefs <your filesystem name> /ofs Passphrase (for //<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.
