WAVE supports storing video locally or via NAS (Network Attached Storage) arrays. An easy way to continually expand a Server's storage capacity is to add NAS devices as storage locations
Mounting a NAS in Ubuntu via NFS:
- Use Terminal command sudo apt-get install nfs-commonto install the NFS server
- For this setup guide we'll assume you have configured a shared folder via samba at your NAS in the /shared location.
- In your root folder create a destination folder using the cd /and sudo mkdir some_folder_namecommands while in Terminal.
- Connect the shared NAS folder to the destination folder using Terminal command sudo mount <NAS_address>:/shared /some_folder_name replacing <NAS_address> in the command line above with yourNAS's IP address or url.
- Make sure the NAS reconnects if your Ubuntu machine restarts with Terminal command sudo nano /etc/fstab
- Add a line to the launched file: <NAS_adress>:/shared /some_shared_folder nfs rsize=8192, wsize=8192, timeo=14, intr
- Save the file and execute Terminal command sudo mount -a
- If NAS connection has been successfully configured your NAS device can be seen in the list of devices shown with Terminal command df -h
