Additional mounts can be specified as part of your cloud-config. These mounts are applied within the console container. Here’s a simple example that mounts
#cloud-config mounts: - ["/dev/vdb", "/mnt/s", "ext4", ""]
Important: Be aware, the 4th parameter is mandatory and cannot be ommited (server crashes). It also yet cannot be
As you will use the
ros cli most probably, it would look like this:
ros config set mounts '[["/dev/vdb","/mnt/s","ext4",""]]'
hint: You need to pre-format the disks, rancher-os will not do this for you. The mount will not work (silently) until you formatted the disk, e.g. using:
The four arguments for each mount are the same as those given for cloud-init. Only the first four arguments are currently supported. The
mount_default_fields key is not yet implemented.
RancherOS uses the mount syscall rather than the
mount command behind the scenes. This means that
auto cannot be used as the filesystem type (third argument) and
defaults cannot be used for the options (forth argument).
With rancher 1.1.1+ you do no longer need to create the mount-point folder, it will be created automatically.
/mnt are mounted as shared in the console container. This means that mounts within these directories will propagate to the host as well as other system services that mount these folders as shared.
See here for a more detailed overview of shared mounts and their properties.
