JBOD needs to mount in OSX

Hello to the forum.

I'm planning to attach a eSATA JBOD to a linux box.
I'll need to be able to mount the JBOD volumes, via network
onto a number of Macs running OSX

Any suggestions on which file system to format the JBOD
drives for this purpose?

I'm planning to go with FC6
but I'm flexible with which distro
I go with.

What is the best way to do this?

Since you will be reading the volumes over the network you should be able to format them with a native Linux file system. You should then be able to mount them via NFS on the OSX box.


esata, mount, os x
