We have 1 author and 3 pubs sharing an NFS mounted datastore. Things work really well after knocking out a few kinks.
However, we had a network outage this morning and it messed up the mount points because we might not have our mount points configured best. Supposedly, by default they keep trying to reconnect and each time it failed, the timeout retry wouldn't be attempted to a much longer period of time.
This got me thinking about something else, what is the best way to fail-over a shared file store? We can only define 1, but is there a best practice for this?
