About this task

This task provides a client with access to the filesystem.

The instructions below apply to:

  • Filesystem
  • Filesystem snapshot

Available access rights

The client is assigned with one of the following access rights:

  • Access - either of the following: read-only, read-write, none
  • Root access - either permitted or not permitted

These access rights are only for the export. Access rights to the filesystem itself are set by the InfiniBox admin (See: Overview of user management). 


  • A host, an IP address or a range of IP addresses
  • a Filesystem export 


  1. Click an Export on the Exports tab on the filesystem's screen. The Export Permissions tab opens.
  2. Click Add Rule to add a new permission setting.
  3. A new row is added to the screen. Insert a client - either a wildcard, an IP address or a range of IP addresses. Select an access level and then whether to allow a root access. Click Done.
    Client examples:
    • Wildcard (*)
    The screen closes. To view, add, or remove the permissions settings, repeat step 1.
