What kind of security do you apply, both to the NFS cluster, and the data that get accessed on it?

heya rudi, never realised u were on this list too ;)

the exports are controlled by source IP address in /etc/exports. The data on there is not sensitive data at all in our environment, and GFS is all server environment, with no user access...  but I just tested using ACLs and it works 100% (added the acl option to gfs mount, and configured using setfacl). We are using ldap network authentication, so works nicely with group permissions ;)

(although we do have 1 luks volume image on the gfs filesystem that is mounted by one of the phy machines using a keyfile stored locally).

A good solution for security is to define the clustered NFS service on a "private" non-routed network and give the VMs a new interface in that network. Then the NFS won't even be visible outside the cluster. Also keeps that traffic off your physical networks.
