Re: [Linux-cluster] samba on gfs



Hello,
we have some customers that have samba clusters with GFS running for a long 
time without problems. There are some things you need to take into account 
but nevertheless samba on GFS runs very well even when you export the same 
data via NFS. 
E.G. one customer runs a "active/active" Samba/NFS Cluster on GFS as ADS 
Member for about a year (up to 600 Users) without problems.
I would say samba and GFS is a very nice combination.
Regards Marc.
