Hi list,

I hope you can help me with my questions.

ATM I'm trying to rebuild our infrastructure and I stumbled upon GlusterFS which seems to be ideal for what I've planned, or trying to do.

Here is a small gif which might be useful. 


I'd like to use the Gluster-Cluster to provide data nfs-shares for the ganeti xen cluster BUT ALSO Windows-Shares for our Users at the same time.


I guess there are some ppl. out there who have a similar setup running in their datacenter.

1) What's the best approach to achieve above setup? It's crucial for me that the W2K8-DC has control over the shares and denies or grands access to the shares. Any tips? Maybe a link for a HowTo?

2) What are the pitfalls and/or caveats here? Anything important that I need to know?

Ah, BTW I plan on using Ubuntu or Debian for my Gluster-Cluster.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Jens Simmoleit
