How would I mount multiple network shares to single mount point?


//    42T   22T   21T  51% /mnt/data6
//   8.1T  6.2T  1.9T  77% /mnt/data7
//    33T   29T  4.6T  87% /mnt/data8

These would be mounted or bound together: /mnt/data6, /mnt/data7, /mnt/data8 etc.. to /mnt/dataALL.

There are no directories with same name in network shares, but subdirs have identical names. So, I think there should be no conflicting over names.

What is the best practice for this kind of unified or layered configuration?

    Have a look at UnionFS. – dirkt Jul 12 '18 at 15:12
  • The example shows different mount-points: /mnt/data6, /mnt/data7 and /mnt/data8. – ctrl-alt-delor Jul 13 '18 at 6:25
  • Thank you! After some time on google checking unionfs, and some other similar options. unionfs-fuse works great for ubuntu 16.04 and centos 6.1 – Resolved Jul 13 '18 at 17:37
  • @dirkt, you should rewrite your answer as an answer. – user2066657 Jul 14 '18 at 0:23
  • @user2066657: I think that standards for an answer here would demand I explain how to use UnionsFS etc., and I was too lazy for that. If you (or the asker) would like to write a more detailed answer, please do so. – dirkt Jul 14 '18 at 7:36
