Using NFS to mount a location while running single-user mode

Using server properties, you can allow an agent on a target server running in single-user mode to mount a source location using the NFS data transmission protocol.

A UNIX agent may need to mount a source location if a patch or software package being deployed is defined to use the "Agent mounts source for direct use at deployment" option, as described in Adding software.

This procedure requires you to set a value for the DEPLOY_ALLOW_NFS_DURING_SUM server property. By default this server property is set to false, which means the agent on a target server running in single-user mode cannot mount a source location using NFS.

Most servers are not configured to use NFS while running in single-user mode. Enabling NFS in this context usually requires special configuration. Before running a Deploy Job on a server with DEPLOY_ALLOW_NFS_DURING_SUM set to True, you must configure the server to use NFS in single-user mode. Otherwise the agent is not able to mount a source location successfully.

To use NFS to mount a location while running single-user mode

To allow the agent on a target server running in single-user mode to mount a source location using NFS, set the DEPLOY_ALLOW_NFS_DURING_SUM server property to True.

For details on how to define a property value, see Setting values for system object properties.
