The Rapid NFS plug-in must be installed on to the media server type you choose (for supported operating systems and DMAs, see the DR Series System Interoperability Guide).
The plug-in is installed using a self-extracting installer that installs the Rapid NFS plug-in and all of its related components. The installer supports the following modes, with the default being Help (-h):
$> ./DellRapidNFS-xxxxx-xxxxx-x86_64.bin -help
usage: DellRapidNFS-xxxxx-xxxxx-x86_64.bin [ -h ] [ -install ] [ -uninstall ]
-h : Displays help
-install : Installs the plug-in
-upgrade : Upgrades the plug-in
-uninstall : Uninstalls the plug-in
-force : Forces the installation of the plug-in

8. If you are using a DMA that supports a marker, set the marker by using -o in the mount command. For example, if you wanted to set the CommVault marker (cv):mount -t rdnfs 10.222.322.190:/containers/backup /mnt/backup -o marker=cv
