George, Wayne, these are helpful comments. Thanks!
Actually I’m kind of surprised that you think the solution is special at all. You have one storage node that multiple masters can use for data storage purposes. Actually, we do not want to replicate the data at all, we just want one storage location where each master can deploy images to its clients. I do hope we don’t talk past another! That is why we thought to attach a network filesystem to the FOG masters and be done - unfortunately it does not work due to NFS usage.
For the use case: We want to capture images from nodes in one part of the network and deploy them to nodes of another part of the network. The nodes in the network partitions are sufficiently equal (hopefully).We cannot use one FOG master since parts of the network might be inaccessible, however there will be a machine that can access the relevant network partition and the storage node - this machine then hosts another FOG master…
I think I’m going to spend time experimenting with some setups just to get used to the terminology and how things work out.
