I need your precious support and advices for a kind of setup for my home computing.
So... I have two laptops and a desktop that I use same (or different) times. Every computer has a different distro (Arch for desktop, openSUSE for laptop1 and LinuxMINT for laptop2) with everyone its own purposes.
I also have a small SoC board.
And now my question... I'd like to setup the small SoC as a MASTER with attached a 2TB eSATA HDD and put it inside my LAN (via eth). What I need is that when I use one of the three computers, they sync specific folders with the "MASTER" and theese folders are taken up at every boot.
Example: MASTER has unique partition of 2TB with: /dwn, /doc, /music, /film, /tv, /pictures, /src_build.
I download the PDF of an invoice in PC2/home/mysameusername/dwn, but then I move into PC2/home/mysameusername/doc. Actually the file is saved in MASTER/doc.
Then I turn on PC3 and rip a DVD into PC3/home/mysameusername/film; again, the file is actuyally saved in MASTER/film and I can read it from every others PCs. The ripped DVD will be converted using PC1 and the converted file will be stored inside MASTER/film; the original rip will be deleted after. Then when it's time to transfer some photos from the phone to PC1/home/mysameusername/pictures, the files will be actually stored in MASTER/pictures. After some time I travel, and save some photos inside PC2/home/mysameusername/pictures; when I return home I'd like that PC2 automatically saves new photos inside MASTER. Ecc...
The result is:
MASTER[/dwn, /doc, /music, /film, /tv, /pictures, /src_build] will autosync on every boot desktop, laptop1, laptop2
And from every computer, files (and sub-folders) will be synced, modified, red, deleted, renamed, etc...
How is done this? Can you pleas explain how to set-up or which online documentation should I look for?
Hope you could understand my idea / question, english is not my First language!
Ok... Thanks to @Panki comments I managed to clarify my doubts... So let me summarize!
- This LDAP directory can be either local (installed on the same computer) or network (e.g. in a lab environment where central authentication is desired).
- Setting up an OpenLDAP Server with SSL + NFS for User Home Directories
1) This is what, indeed, I was looking for (THANKS to Paki to understand my real need)
2) Good: directories are taken up on boot from a server, but... What if I boot a computer outside from my home LAN?
