At work we have a bunch of NFS servers. The servers provide the home 
directories for all the employees client machines. 

Most of the employees mount their home dirs manually, but some are mounted 
using scripts. Employee John knows he belongs to NFS server 1, and emplyoee 
Britney knows she belongs to NFS server 3 and so on.

Now due to new conditions I have to set up a new system from which ALL 
employees are able to mount their home directories from their homes (where they 
live). Since I only have one IP address at my disposal, I need to set up some 
kind of union system in which all home directories apear as they live on just 
one server. Besides that I have to figure out what kind of security I need to 
use. I have been thinking about AFS.

About the union thing I first thought of somehow union mouting all the 
different home directories on a single machine which then serves as the access 
point, but I am affraid if that particular machine crashes, then no one can get 
to their files. 

Good ideas and experiences are greatly appreciated! 

Best and kind regards
