CloudStor is an AARNet developed and supported service that enables AARNet customers and the wider community to quickly and securely sync, share and store files using the high-speed AARNet network. 

Nectar offers a helper command called cloudstor-setup for users who wish to make their CloudStor storage available on their Nectar virtual machine. It walks you though the setup procedure, and mounts your CloudStor storage to /cloudstor within your instance.

Getting Started

When logged into your Nectar virtual machine, start the setup by typing cloudstor-setup at the command prompt, which will begin the setup. This command is available on Nectar official images, build after 2018-10-10. See the table below for more information.
The cloudstor-setup command will prompt you for your CloudStor username and sync password. You can find your username from the CloudStor Settings page. It will usually be your institution email address. If you don't have an existing sync password, or you have forgotten it, you can can reset it from the CloudStor Settings page. 

Enter your username and sync password when prompted, and it should mount your storage.

You can safely ignore the /sbin/mount.davfs: warning: the server does not support locks warning. 

You should now be able to work with your CloudStor data at /cloudstore on your virtual machine.
