Hi all,

I now have a quote from Dell, for a 4 TB, RAID5 NX3000 NAS.

It comes pre configured with Windows Storage Server 2008 Standard Edition. Dell support assures me it will be compatable with NFS on FreeBSD, but if we are not happy with it we can wipe it and install whatever software we want ... FreeNAS for example.

Questions:

Has anyone used/using Windows Storage Server 2008 with FreeBSD clients? Is there any compatability loss? (NSF).

Is anyone using this specific hardware? If so, comments please!

-Grant

Has anyone used

Hi,

All of the 200 domains on each server have thier own Real Unix user
(obviously). Once the NAS is setup, (using NFS), how do the permissions on
the NAS machine play out? i.e. when user 'hisname' logs into a server via
ftp, and uploads a file to his home directory (which is on the NAS), will
the file permissions be the same, and will 'hisname' own the file exactly
the same as if he were writing to the local (server) disk?

That is expected, else something bad would exists in the configuration
of the NAS.

In the NAS
exports do I have to map every user to the NFS or can I just maproot?

Maproot is the easiest as it gives complete access to the NFS exported
directory.

Now you may consider that for security reason, users of client-machine
1 should only be allowed to NFS mount their own home directory.

In that case, you may need the users of client-machine 1 to exist on
client-machine 1 and on the server, etc for machine 2... Actually I
never had this case when a user account only exists on an NFS client
but not on the NFS server, so I am not too sure. I guess that user ID
of the users should be different on every client system.

You may consider an LDAP directory for your users, where the server
would see all the users, but each client-machine would see only the
users belonging to it (I thing that there is an "host" attributes, so
client-1 only sees the users with host=client-1).

Good luck,

Olivier
