Hi Guys and Guysesses A couple of years ago I managed to stumble my way through building an NFS file server using the Debian network installer I 'think' I've learnt some stuff along the way, but I struggle with Linux to be honest and was hoping someone could point me to an answer to my query I have two HDD's mounted as /shares and /shares2. These are shared in /etc/exports as the same names to two different IP's. One with rw and one ro access. All working a treat so far What I wanted to do was combine these two ro mounts into one RO directory, for the RO IP access I created a directory called /test and made two symlinks (ln -s) to the mount points On the server I can go to /test and do an ls, all the files from both drives show up Brilliant I thought! Newp.... Added /test to /etc/exports However when I mount the /test share from the client nothing shows up in the listing. It's completely empty I've had very limited success using mount --bind. But only one (the last one I mount) shows up in the /test dir on the client. But both mount --bind's show when I type the mount command on the server. IS there anyway I can achieve what I want to do, ie have all files from both HDD's show in one directory? I only need / want this to be read only. Thanks so much for any pointers Very C0nfused!
