Clustered Samba for GFS2

Summary

Support for active-active samba sharing over GFS2 using CTDB.

Owner

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 12
  • Last updated: 7/20/2009
  • Percentage of completion: 70%

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.
