Running Ubuntu as fileserver: any caveats before sharing /home dirtree over local lan
I intend to share the complete /home directory tree via NFS (and SAMBA) over a local network. Are there any caveats, warnings or things to keep in mind before doing this?
So far I had only shared the dir /home/forall under the /home branch, but I will now set up central mail for all and thus it would be helpful to have real permission-controlled homedirs in use again (btw: cyrus imap-daemon).
One important! thing that might rise problems is that sometimes a user is logged in on multiple machines running firefox/mozilla (which stores it's bookmarks, history, etc. by default in ".hiddenfile" files in the /home/userdir path). Will mozilla complain about conflicts?
Will I crash my systems?? (so many questions...)
