What administrative decision have you people out there made about
mounting NFS file systems on an Apollo (SR 10.2)?
Because the DOMAIN file system has each node's disk mounted as //node,
I thought it would be nice to have the NFS systems mounted the same
way (with mount -f nfs,root). But the problem is, I can't mount a
file system as //remnode, as I need to mount //remnode/users and
further //remnode/users/a, //remnode/users/b and so on.
The manuals advice me not to create a directory at the network root
(//) as it might disappear(?) at some time. Is that really so?
Another problem is that other Unixes need to have the mount point
directory created before mounting. Apollo's view seems to be, that
the directory must not exist. Is there a way around this?
With possible solutions to the problems, I would VERY much like hear
about your solutions on mount points between Apollos and other Unixes.
I have directed follow-ups to comp.unix.admin, as I don't read
comp.sys.apollo. And perhaps you should just mail me, and I'll create
a summary of some kind, if there's interest for that.
