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 :-)

So... This means there is a problem only when you want to run multiple samba servers in a cluster? There should be no problem sharing the same GFS disk for one samba instance and one NFS instance running on separate nodes (or even on the same node during maintenance)?
