Document Table of Contents Mounting a Shared Drive

The most convenient way to share files between a development PC and the Cyclone® V SoC FPGA development board is to mount a network drive.
  1. Check the /etc/fstab file systems table file on your development PC for the line that describes the mounting of the drive you want to use on the board.
    The following example /etc/fstab entry indicates that the /data folder on the my_nas server is mounted to the /data folder on the development PC:
    my_nas:/data /data nfs exec,dev,suid,rw,tcp,hard,intr,vers=3,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,timeo=600,retrans=200
  2. Add the /etc/fstab entry described above to the /etc/fstab file on the Cyclone V SoC development board.
  3. Run the sync command to save the /etc/fstab file to the micro SD flash card.
  4. Create an empty folder on the board that serves as the mounting point for the network drive.
    For example: type mkdir /data, where /data is the name of the folder.
  5. Invoke the busybox mount -a command.
    If the mounting operation fails, rerun the command.
