Access to the required information to Create and Initialize your Filespace with Zadara Intelligent Object Storage (ZIOS) can be obtained via your management console and your User Information

Your administrator might have to provide this to you, should you not have management access. Please provide your administrator a link to this FAQ to detail the information required.

Please select your User Profile from the top right hand corner and navigate to where we have highlighted in the below screenshot for your Public IP, API Endpoint, S3 Access and Secret Keys.

Once you have your Public IP, API Endpoint and S3 Access and Secret Keys you can create your LucidLink Filespace. Please select "Zadara Storage" tile when creating your Filespace, you will use the endpoint of your API Endpoint from your User Information properties.

Along with your Endpoint, you will also require your Region (note: it is case sensitive), you will find you Region within your VPSA System, Settings menu

Please include https:// and your valid endpoint. Your Region is a required field. Select Next. Optionally you can provide your own bucket name, if you do not, we will create a unique bucket based on your Filespace name.

You will note your Filespace is being prepared. This will take, up to, a couple of minutes to complete.

Once your freshly created Filespace is ready for initialization. Please follow the steps within the portal to install your LucidLink OS client and provide your S3 Access and Secret Keys. You will be prompted for a Shared Secret which will AES-256 encrypt your Filespace to prevent unauthorized access to your data. Please follow the instructions from our Initialize your Filespace FAQ for assistance.

Should you need to initialize your Filespace manually via the command line, we have provided an example initialization string which you can customize with your Filespace name, preferred Shared Secret, credentials and specify any additional options available to "lucid help init-s3" such as Bucket name or data layout Block Size. 

Consult our Command line Filespace initialization FAQ for guidance. 


Example initialization string:
