[Linux-cluster] RFI quick HOWTO



Hello...

	Last year I looked at several distributed filesystems; OpenAFS, GFS,
and NFS.  This was for a specific project.  I settled on NFS over LVM
over software raid5.  It works well except for a few NFS issues here
and there.  I really wanted to go with GFS but the lack of good
documentation held me back.  What would be ideal is a specific simple
HOWTO on setting up a simple lab test setup.

something like:

replicated with failover
server1 fs /important_data on /dev/sdb1
server2 fs /important_data on /dev/sdb1

client1 mount /important_data
client2 mount /important_data

with no FC, no shared scsi, no dual ethernet networks.  Just the
minimum hardware possible. Most labs already have this stuff laying
around.

yes? no? maybe?
