Mount PVC with ZFS
I have always been a fan of having my Kubernetes data easily accessible using a host path, along with a share so that I could access those host paths. Come to find out, that is not considered best practice. Mostly due to permission issues that can arise maintaining the container files along with the share itself. To fix this I am moving to using a PVC (Persistent Volume Claim). This is my process for TrueNAS. The k3s/kubectl/zfs commands should be usable for other distros and Kubernetes setups.
Identify the PVC
First lets get a list of all the PVC that we have.
k3s kubectl get pvc -A | sort -u
with this we can now look up where the PVC is stored on disk. Replacing VOLUME with the volume from our command above
zfs list | grep VOLUME EXAMPLE: zfs list | grep pvc-b976c745-6c53-49d8-9d19-e2f47072a73e
Mount the PVC
Now we are ready to mount the PVC. Make sure the container is stopped and use the following command
zfs set mountpoint=/MOUNTPATH PATH/TO/PVC EXAMPLE: zfs set mountpoint=/flatnotes One/ix-applications/releases/flatnotes/volumes/pvc-b976c745-6c53-49d8-9d19-e2f47072a73e
You can now access the volume at the mount point.
One thing to keep in mind is that the mount is being done with ZFS, so it is being mounted in your pool. Where we entered /flatnotes is actually /mnt/POOL_NAME/flatnotes when browsing.
Restore the original mount
When you are done you need to remount it back to where it was with the following use the PATH/TO/PVC from earlier
zfs set mountpoint=legacy PATH/TO/PVC EXAMPLE: zfs set mountpoint=legacy One/ix-applications/releases/flatnotes/volumes/pvc-b976c745-6c53-49d8-9d19-e2f47072a73e
At the time of writing I found this information in the official TrueCharts manual.
