Using Samba to Access Files From Apache/Tomcat?
 
I have recently replaced a Win2K/IIS server with a new server running SLES 9/Apache/Tomcat for a major facilities application. I've got the site (jsp) up and running and pulling data from a SQL Server database.

Now, the next step is to determine how best to pull Autocad files into a shared directory so that the *.dwf files can be displayed by the web applicaiton. The autocad files are stored on a Win2003 File Server inside a domain on a shared folder.

I'm guessing I'd want to setup a SMB link to the Windows server from the SLES machine and have that link mounted.

Is this a good strategy? Are there any issues you can forsee?

well if you need to get them there from windows, there's not any easier option. just make sure it's secure of the files are ending up on a webserver.

I'm sorry, I totally missed your follow up.

Here's what we did.

The files reside on the Windows (2003, I think) file server. \\is_dom1\cafm\CAD

We've setup a mount point under SMB with a startup script to mount that to the SLES box: \opt\cafm\cad

This way, the Tomcat server can see the files (without needing update permissions) and the Autocad users can publish without having to go through SMB.

Thanks!!
