comment Why do Linux networks use Samba?
/etc/exports supports cidr or netmask notation, so for the common case of exporting to a contiguous block there is no need to list every client explicitly. Also, wrt. the symlinking, see samba.org/samba/news/symlink_attack.html

@Jim B - POSIX locks are advisory, so there's no difference between NFS and local fs locking in that respect.

comment Splitting a shared pool of disks in a SAN into numerous LUNS
@Chopper3: FWIW, we haven't had any reliability issues with FATA disks. But yeah, they're big and slow so rebuilding takes time; VRAID6 helps me sleep at night.
