Folder & File Sharing


This is my situation:
1. I use RHEL5 (SERVER X) in which samba is running. This is an IBM hardware on which the vender is not allowing me to install any hardware other than IBM parts.
2. I have another P4 system on which Fedora Core 11 (SERVER Y) is running. I had connected 300GB SCSI HDD and created necessary partitions.

Now I want to mount few of the volumes of SERVER Y on SERVER X and allow users (samba clients) to access the volumes as folders as any other volumes in SERVER X through samba. I mounted one volume of SERVER Y in SERVER X using NFS mounting and shared through samba. The problem, I am facing, is it is very slow.

Please guide. Thanks in advance.

Nothing we can "guide" you with. Both Samba and NFS are fairly slow to begin with, and you're putting one on top of the other. So yes, it will be slow. If you want it to be faster, use just ONE protocol, not both. Windows CAN support NFS, so you could just directly mount the NFS shares on Windows. Updating the old FC11 box wouldn't hurt, either.
