How do I mount the Axigen storage in a virtual file system on a Linux platform?

The virtual file system represents mounting a hierarchy as a file-system tree under a mount point and a mount scope. The mount point must be indicated as a path in the local file-system to an existing empty directory; the mount scope may be one of the following:

a domain specified by name;

an object in a domain, both specified by name;

a folder in the mailbox in a public folder, account or mailing list in a domain; the domain and the account / mailing list must be specified by name and the folder must be specified by its absolute path withing the mailbox hierarchy;

In order to mount a virtual file system of a domain under Axigen, two approaches are currently available:

1. Using the CLI interface:

Log into the CLI using the telnet application:

telnet 7000

Enter the administrative username:

<login> user admin

 Enter the password:

<password> your_admin_password

Enter the server settings context

<#> config server

Enter the FTP-Backup settings context

<server#> config ftp-backup

Mount a domain under an empty directory

<server-ftpBackup#> FILESYSTEM mount /mnt/axigen domain example.tld


2. Using the Webadmin interface:

Log in to the Webadmin interface with the administrative credentials

Click on "File System Access" under "FTP Backup & Restore" context

Click on "Mount object" button 

Enter the path to the mount point (an empty directory on your filesystem) in the text box next to "Mount point:" e.g.:

   - /mnt/axigen

Select the mount scope as "Domain" from the available drop-down menu

Enter the name of the domain to be mounted in the available text box
