AIOps 21.3.1 DX Platform Installer ignores the use of a different NFS mount for Postgres


Article ID: 235027


Updated On:


DX Operational Intelligence


We are planning to different NFS point for Postgres:

/nfs/ca/dxi_postgres  => Postgres DB only

/nfs/ca/dxi = All other datasources (Elastic, Kafka, NAS, TAS, etc)

During installation we entered the different mount points, for example:

Enter your choice: 2
Specify the Name of NFS Server IP/Host []:
Specify the NFS Folder [/nfs/ca/dxi]:
For the medium installation fill in the next values for multiple NFS mounts.
Specify the Name of NFS ES 1 Server IP/Host []:
Specify the NFS ES 1 Folder [/nfs/ca/dxi]:
Specify the NFS DataStore 1 Folder [/nfs/ca/dxi]:
Specify the Name of NFS Postgres 1 Server IP/Host []:
Specify the NFS Postgres 1 Folder [/nfs/ca/dxi]: /nfs/ca/dxi_postgres
Installation completes successfully and  PVs are created successfully as below:

however, when checking details of pv.dxi-axaservices-pg-data, pg-pdata/postgres is using the incorrect NFS mount point
