Share directories

About this task

To share directories, perform the following steps:


  1. Select one of the machines as the “primary machine”. Allocate a directory on this machine to provide the shared location.
  2. Share this location so that all members of the cluster have access to it:
    • Windows: share this directory to the other machines
    • UNIX: use NFS to share the directory
  3. On all machines, mount the file system so that all cluster members have the same mount point to this directory. For example:
  4. Under DEBS_shared/, create a sub-directory for each of the categories shown in the configuration file (loadable, writable, and so on), for example:

    and set that value in the configuration file, for example:

    <loadable ...>/DEBS_shared/lw</loadable>
