From the manpage and the handbook and Google etc I get the idea that it
might not be possible. Still, asking just in case there are any
round-about ways ... I would assume a scenario like this is common.
Forgot to add: the two directories are imported "dynamically" on the
client side. So I can't just make fstab entries on the client side to
mount both points. I use AMD to mount /net/store when needed. And I can't
for the life of me figure how to make it mount /net/store/photos too when
needed -- I dont think that's possible(?) ...
I have that configuration working.
/pub -alldirs client
/pub/video -alldirs client
On the client side, I didn't change anything to the configuration of AMD.
Simply cd'ing to /host/server/pub and then 'cd video' does the right thing. I
don't think -alldirs is really needed, but it's there for convenience.
Thanks Pieter. The default configuration mounts *all* the exported
filesystems from host. Which should be fine, just that I don't want it
that way (and I like complicating matters, I guess! :p).
Using the default way, I can access the exported filesystems as
/host/server/net/store[/photos] -- which is not what I want. Rather, I
access the exported /net/store[/photos] filesystems under the
/net/store[/photos] mount points of the client -- and I don't want any
other exported file systems in there either. Kind of like the "host" type
amd filesystem, but only for a specific branch.
This is something I did come up with:
It does what I want -- /net/store/[anything] is mounted from the remote
host (obelix) -- only problem (and the reason why I didnt go ahead with
this) being that there's no way to see what all directories are available
under /net/store. If do a "cd /net/store/music" it will work well; but if
you do an "ls /net/store" it won't mount "/net/store" and show me what
subdirs are available. And the "browseable_dirs" option in "amd.conf" does
not help either coz its an "auto" type filesystem.
I had forgotten about the "host" filesystem type (the default). So thanks
for pointing it out. Let me see if I can twiddle around and find a
