    I want to integrate my DAM Appliances with NAS storage for archiving as well as system backup. Could you please guide me how to mount the NAS storage in MX and Gateway's.

    CIFS  (SMB)   or  NFS

    mount -t cifs -o username=<windows user>,password=<password>,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777 //<Remote IP Address>/<Remote Dir> /<Local Dir>
    mount -t nfs -o nolock,nfsvers=3 <RemoteIPAddress>/<RemoteDir> /<LocalDir>

    Thank you Wenlong Wang, Do we required any specific ports to communicate? i couldn't find the port details in the Imperva portal.

    Client :   MX / GW

    Server :  NFS Server :    TCP  111  2049     UDP  111  4046
                  CIFS Server:    TCP  139  445       UDP  137  138


    There is no need to open any special port in MX GW because it is client.
    You can open TCP2049 and TCP139 first and try to see if it is mounted and transmitted normally.

    I had a problem with the NFS drive not remounting after a reboot.

    To fix this I added a mount command to /etc/rc.local
     Like:mount /<LocalDir>​
    If you change that file then when you apply an update it will give an error for a modified file. 
    Copy the rc.local file off to another system prior to upgrade.
