      Description

      TODO #2: Need to mention that solr should not be on nfs, it should be
      on localhost. each service has its own solr, so running them on
      separate machines is great. to do this, do:
      org.opencastproject.storage.dir=local
      org.opencastproject.file.repo.path=shared1
      org.opencastproject.workspace.rootdir=shared2

      gdl: /opt/matterhorn/felix/work/opencast/files
      128.233.104.0/255.255.255.0(rw,sync,no_subtree_check) /opt/matterhorn/felix/work/opencast/workspace
      128.233.104.0/255.255.255.0(rw,sync,no_subtree_check) Works for me

          I'll check this on Tobias makes his changes to the 1.4.x config files.

          We've been having our solr index on NFS since we started developing and testing MH. Our production servers have the solr index in its default location under the MH "storage" folder, which is mounted in an NFS share. We have observed no problems at all.

          > Do you use NFSv4? Would you mind sharing your NFS mount parameters and any changes to you need to make to the default solrconfig.xml?

          What I'm saying is that we never had problems with the index nor we did something special for it to work. We just mounted the NFS share with the normal options (rw,hard,intr), and it simply worked. Or, at least, we don't know of any issue arising from keeping the SOLR index in the share.

          When I was using that configuration it worked 90% of the time. The only time I could reliably break things was when I brought up all of the machines in a cluster at once and then things would get out of sync. In speaking with Tobias, the shared configuration might work, but it's not designed to work. As such, it could break due to code changes at any time.

          Incorportated into the install across multiple servers docs for 1.4 and newer.
