Has anyone had experience plugging GlusterFS and Openfiler together or something similar?
Here is the motivation:
- Disk space on multiple server regrouped using GlusterFS
- Centralized access using LDAP/AD and quota management using Openfiler as the GlusterFS client
- SMB/CIFS server for easy sharing to multiple users on Mac and Windows
I know I can have Gluster installed on Openfiler (rPath Linux) successfully but Openfiler seems to be very picky on what it can use as a shared drive. Mounting the Gluster volume inside an existing share does not seem to allow quotas with the mounted folder free space.
If this is not possible, is there any alternative to give the same capabilities?
