As the number of fileservers in a FedFS domain grows, administering them by logging in to each and running a command line becomes challenging. FedFS therefore provides an RPC mechanism for handling administrative tasks remotely. FedFS administrators can manage junctions and NSDB connection parameters remotely.
Since the RPC interface duplicates operations that can also be done by command line on the server, it is entirely optional.
Set up rpc.fedfsd
To enable this interface on Linux NFS servers, simply start rpc.fedfsd.
# systemctl enable rpcfedfsd.service # systemctl start rpcfedfsd.service
In fedfs-utils-0.8, the administrative tools that contact this server are commands such as fedfs-create-junction and fedfs-get-nsdb-params. These are simply commands that perform a single RPC against a remote FedFS administrative server. In fedfs-utils-0.8, these remain a primitive mechanism meant for scripting or testing.
