Mount --bind & NFS problem
On the server I have mounted some common directories into each user's home using the mount --bind option. This is working as required. When users ftp to their /home/user area they have access to the shared directories. Using Samba a single Home drive has all the personal & shared directories.
However, on the other Linux workstations mounting the home directory using NFS gives everything EXCEPT the shared directories from the server.
So, Is a mount --bind on the server exported to NFS? It would appear not. Am I missing something here?
I have it working at the moment by connecting to the shared directories using NFS & having a local workstation Mount --bind to put them in the home areas. This is a messy solution as on the local machines I must sort out all the NFS mounts. I also don't like this as Samba appears to work better than NFS, something that never sounds true!!
