Mount a volume quickstart

This page provides quickstart instructions for how to mount the volume on a client.

Mount your volume on a client

After you create a volume, you can create a Linux Compute Engine VM and mount the volume.

  1. Go to the NetApp Volumes page in the Google Cloud console.

    Go to NetApp Volumes

  2. Click Volumes.

  3. Identify the volume you want to mount.

  4. Click the More options icon.

  5. Click Mount instructions.

  6. Open an ssh client and connect to your instance. Install the NFS client on your instance. Based on your instance type, run one of the following commands:

    Red Hat

    sudo yum install -y nfs-utils


    sudo yum install -y nfs-utils


    sudo apt-get install nfs-common


    sudo apt-get install nfs-common

  7. Create a new directory on your instance.

  8. Mount your volume.

Clean up

Use the following instructions to delete your Google Cloud project.

Before you begin

When you delete a project, the following actions take place:

  • All contents in the project are deleted. If you used an existing project to get started using NetApp Volumes, you delete any other work completed in the project.

  • Custom project IDs are lost. When you created the project, you might have created a custom project ID that you want to use in the future. To preserve the URLs that use the project ID, such as an URL, delete selected resources inside the project instead of deleting the whole project.

Delete the Google Cloud project

Use the following instructions to delete a Google Cloud project:

  1. Go to Manage resources in the Google Cloud console.

  2. In the project list, select the project that you want to delete and then click Delete.

  3. In the dialog, enter the project ID and then click Shut down to delete the project.
