How to Browse the Virtual Filesystem Mount under Linux

How to access the mount point from a Linux environment

Issue cause

When mounting the FUSE Virtual File System under Linux, the mount point doesn't allow access even for the root system account, returning "Permission denied" errors


In order to mount a virtual filesystem please refer to the dedicated knowledge base article.

Due to the default behavior of FUSE under Linux, the mount point is available to be browsed only by the user that issued the mount command, not even the root user being excepted by this.

As a work around for this behavior, in order to access the mount point, the user running the AXIGEN service will have to be used for backup and restore purposes. Under a default AXIGEN installation, the user running the AXIGEN service is axigen and has no shell assigned, therefore running a shell as axigen user is only possible by using sudo as root:

sudo -u axigen /bin/bash
After having a shell as axigen user, the mount point should be listed with proper permissions.
