Hello, list! I've got about six production servers and a couple of workstations running FreeBSD 6.1-STABLE and 6.2-PRERELEASE. Some of these machines are sitting in DMZ, the others are internal. Currently, each of them has their own ports tree.
How terrible of an idea would it be to take one of the production servers that isn't really doing a whole lot of work, and make it's /usr/ports available over NFS to the other machines? Am I headed in a bad direction here? Also, what about user accounts between machines? I got to thinking that because some of the servers have the same user accounts, would it be possible to share a password file or home directories? Should I build another box strictly for this purpose? If so, could you point me to some documentation for achieving such a goal? Thank you for your time! cmh -- Christopher M.
