Hi Arthur.

Short answer - no. It will really screw things up, since the clients maintain the view of the Filesystem, not the servers.

More details available on this list.

Subject: [Gluster-users] Usage Question

I have a simple question regarding GlusterFS's usage. Let's suppose I'm exporting a home directory via GlusterFS from a server to a few client machines. Is it ok if users login into the server to create and edit files?
I'm not interested in using features such as Automated File Replication. I'm just wondering whether it is safe to manipulate files directly on the server.
