Adding an external storage mount point can be done via cmsh. This is described in the manual in the configuration chapter. In the example below nashost is the host name of the system on which the external storage is located.

[root@HeadNode1 ~]# cmsh

[HeadNode1->category]% use default 
[HeadNode1->category[default]]% fsmounts 

[HeadNode1->category[default]->fsmounts]% add /home
[HeadNode1->category*[default*]->fsmounts*[/home*]]% set device nashost:/home
[HeadNode1->category*[default*]->fsmounts*[/home*]]% set filesystem nfs
