Detailed Description

With the availability of a clustered database (CTDB) for Samba, multiple instances of smbd across different nodes of a cluster are able to share state. It is now possible to share the same directory in a clustered GFS2 filesystem via Samba+CTDB from all the nodes of a cluster to facilitate Active/Active Samba sharing.

Benefit to Fedora

Active/Active sharing of Samba services was not possible over GFS2 (or any other clustered filesystem) before this feature was implemented. With this it's possible now.
