[root@HeadNode1 ~]# cmsh
[HeadNode1]% category 
[HeadNode1->category]% use default 
[HeadNode1->category[default]]% fsmounts 

[HeadNode1->category[default]->fsmounts]% add /home
[HeadNode1->category*[default*]->fsmounts*[/home*]]% set device nashost:/home
[HeadNode1->category*[default*]->fsmounts*[/home*]]% set filesystem nfs
[HeadNode1->category*[default*]->fsmounts*[/home*]]% commit
[HeadNode1->category[default]->fsmounts[/home]]% show
