I have a directory
/persistent/pacmanPkgCache which is both:
- nfs-shared to other machines
- bind-mounted to
Does having this directory nfs-shared and bind-mounted at the same time destroy nfs' ability to handle file locking?
Could a program on the nfs server working in
/var/cache/pacman/pkg bypass the locking mechanism nfs implements, if another machine has the same file locked?
I could switch it so the nfs-shares are from the
/var/cache/pacman/pkg location, since that is where programs on the nfs server will most commonly access the files through.
It's a long story why the directory is being accessible in both locations - easiest to ignore that part. :-)
