I've been scratching my head regarding this and thought I'd post it to see if I was missing anything obvious!
The scenario is this:
The server contains a very large folder called "Programmes" which is a LVM volume and is shared over the network (mixed between Ubuntu and OSX) with all users granted R/W access.
A webcam has been fitted to our studio (I'm writing from a radio station in London) and FTPs images to a user account on the server (
I'd like to bind the
/home/webcam directory under Programmes so that it is accessible to the network when programmes is exported.
I've done the following in fstab:
#LVM Disk UUID_OF_LVM /media/Programmes ext3 errors=remount ro,users,user,relatime #Bind Web Cam directory and then remount with new RO options /home/webcam /media/Programmes/Web_Cam none bind,user 0 0 /media/Programmes/Web_Cam /media/Programmes/Web_Cam none remount,ro 0 0 #Bind to export directory and use rbind to include submounts /media/Programmes /export/Programmes bind rbind
In my /etc/exports:
/export/Programmes 10.0.2.0/255.255.255.0(nohide,fsid=0,async,all_squash,anonu id=1000,anongid=1000,insecure,no_subtree_check,rw, crossmnt)
I can see the Web-Cam folder on the clients but it is empty. I suspect that is an issue with user permissions since I'm exporting a users home directory (coincidently, on Ubuntu it has a lock on the directory)
