[Linux-cluster] Re: proper way to setup NFS



Thanks to Ryan and Lon. Now everything seems to make sense.

By the way, which one is better, NFS over ext3 on lvm or
NFS over GFS, in terms of stability and performance? I will
try to test the performace with the two fs.

I am wondering if there is a proper way to setup a NFS server using
system-config-cluster. I have created one by
- add resource "File System" to mount from share disk
- add resource "IP Address" for the service IP
- add resource "script" for using /etc/init.d/nfs
- add service for NFS using the three resources above
It works, but not sure if I will run into problem later.

However, there are NFS specific resources "NFS Export", "NFS Client".
That make me think maybe I am not doing in the proper way. I would
appreciate if anyone can outline the proper steps for setting up a NFS
server in a linux cluster.

One thing that is bordering me is the "NFS Export" resource. It only has one field called Name. In redhat's document, it says "Enter a name for
the NFS export resource". What exactly should I enter here? Is it the
path to be exported?
