[Gluster-users] Migration path from native Gluster-NFS towards NFS-Ganesha

Hi all,

In light of the future removal of native Gluster-NFS (and also because of a worrying bug that causes NFS crashes, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1381970 then http://www.gluster.org/pipermail/gluster-users/2016-November/029333.html and recently http://www.gluster.org/pipermail/gluster-users/2017-January/029632.html ) I'm planning to move towards NFS-Ganesha.

I have a couple of questions for which I could not find answers on the available docs (sorry if I missed something):

1) Is it possible (and advisable, in production too) today (3.8.x) to configure a GlusterFS based cluster to use NFS-Ganesha (as NFS v3/v4 solution) and Samba (as CIFS solution) both controlled by CTDB as a highly available *and* load balanced (multiple IPs with DNS round-robin, not active/passive) storage solution? (note: I mean *without* using a full Pacemaker+Corosync stack)

2) If the answer to the above question is "yes", is the above above mentioned solution capable of coexisting with oVirt in an hyperconverged setup (assuming replica 3 etc. etc.)?

Many thanks in advance to anyone who can answer the above and/or point me to any relevant resources/docs.

Best regards,
