apt-get install sshfs
rpm -ivh fuse-sshfs-1.8-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
Step2:Once the package is installed we have to create a mount point and mount our server data using sshfs command, for which we require user-name/password. Here are my details for this task.
My Username: root My password: redhat My Server: 10.233.10.212 My mount point: /mnt/ssh
Now create the mount point and mount SSH account data.
#mkdir /mnt/ssh #sshfs [email protected]:/ /mnt/ssh/ [email protected]'s password:
Step3:Testing our set-up
Check if you are able to see the SSH data
bin cdrom data etc initrd.img lib media opt root selinux sys tmp var vmlinuz.old boot cmdb-bkp dev home initrd.img.old lost+found mnt proc sbin srv test usr vmlinuz
What about df -hs command output?
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda2 12G 8.4G 2.5G 78% / /dev/sda6 80G 43G 34G 56% /var /dev/sda5 2.0G 41M 1.8G 3% /home /dev/sda1 99M 12M 83M 12% /boot tmpfs 506M 0 506M 0% /dev/shm sshfs#[email protected]:/ 1000G 0 1000G 0% /mnt/ssh
Step4:So what about mounting it permanently?. We can do it by editing fstab file in /etc folder
go to last line and type below line
sshfs#[email protected]:/ /mnt/ssh fuse defaults 0 0
Save the file and exit. Now run mount -a to update the fstab file state to kernel.
Let me explain what entry in fstab indicates. We are mentioning mount user root data which is located on 10.233.10.212 server on to /mnt/ssh using fuse file system with default settings.
Step5:What about unmounting this drive?
