Re: cannot mount daos with the latest code on github

Hi Pitman and Colin,

The problem was solved by put the mount point on a disk-based rather than memory-based file system.

Do you know why this happened?

Can you provide more information with regards to “special UNS file”?

Could you send me the command line you’re using and the error message?  It would help to run in foreground mode to diagnose this.  We recently added a check for the mount point to be a special UNS file (by checking for a specific extended attribute) so there may be warnings given if this isn’t the case and that shouldn’t cause failure, except if you’re providing a pool UUID and the path is a UNS entry point.

Hi guys, 

I used to be able to mount DAOS with dfuse. However, I failed to do the same with the latest DAOS code on GitHub. 

I got errors complaining the path is not in a unified DAOS namespace. Any ideas about this?
