Configuring local storage device for ELM

Hi,

Can somebody explain how to add local storage as a storage device in the standalone VM of the ELM (ELM-VM-12)?

I am doing a PoC with the ESM, a receiver and an ELM, each of them in a separate VM.

I can see no option for local storage when adding a storage device, so I can´t define pools and retention time.

Thanks!

Thanks, but that does not help me much.

Can somebody tell me how to fill up the information needed in the "Add Storage device" page? This is the filesystem:

I have tried many times with different options, but I have not much knowledge of Linux and always get the following error:

Can you use the following article examples and manually mount the nfs share?

You can use this article for an example on how to mount a location and see if your nfs share can be mounted successfully

No way. Can you see if am I doing something wrong?

I have to execute the commands directly in the ELM, right?

I would not use parted, get out of parted command and do a df -h and obtain the partitions devs

then use the mount command for mounting nfs directly from cli
