[csw-users] NFS shared /opt anyone?

Just a note to let you know we do share over NFS and are benefiting from it. We have one installation for Solaris 8, 9, and 10 (on sparc) and it allows us to easily keep all users on the same version of the tools.

We do not plan on abandoning this approach so I hope support is continued.

I would be interested to know what the significant compromises are in package delivery if you have time, but it is not pressing.

Hi All,

I'm curious to hear whether or not you're sharing /opt over NFS.
Supporting this configuration has traditionally been a goal of CSW,
but it forces several compromises in the way we can deliver package.
We're continuing to attempt this support on the premise that sites out
there are benefiting from it.  We don't know if this is true or not.

So, if you're sharing a single install point of CSW packages over NFS,
we'd love to know.  It would also be interesting to know if you've
recently abandoned this approach for machine-local /opt.
