Re: [Linux-cluster] samba on gfs


The short story is that Samba keeps some state information internally.
So there are issues with keeping multiple Samba serves in sync.
The information in question is not synced to the underlying
filesystem, so GFS can't really do the job of keeping this info in
sync between the nodes.

I am sure other people on the list can provide more details of the
problem and status of any progress :-)

Mac OS X. Because making Unix user-friendly is easier than debugging Windows
