Ok down to Details then wink.gif

There is a network with alot of computers.
The network got a Server that hold the drives that the Department employees use.

The drives contain a folders like this
/subdepartment

subdep it is mounted into their own folder as /home/user/subdepartment

That will automount to the server as the same, giving EVERY one access to a gigantic Readonly folder.
/Department/Subdepartment
Every Week the sum of the server is mirrored to a Special Backupserver.

At their home they got only their own folder, but at the Department they can access the sum of all work
in /Department/User/Subdepartment

Right now there are 40 folders for 40 workers, with several subfolders.
...

Imagine one folder with 40 workers, with one subfolder containing the subdivision data.
the users got a home dir with their own work only.
and a /Department folder with the sum off all inside.

I am testing this with ioFTPd, it is working...
But I want to use Unix/Linux due to it is far superior as server.

the mirror got access to 1 week old work, and the "If in" got access to "this instant" work.

Following the method I want, then a head or group leader can easily check work and how far it has come.
And can with fairly little access intersect a problem before it occure or before the men run out of workhours.
To copy rendered data to a server takes time. But to access need only data can make it very effective.

I hope you see the dept of my resoning, my English is rather bad but I hope you see what I am reaching for.

Thanks again

You did not read the question....

The server is used for movable hotswop drives.
One folder for the department workdir, when the
user go home, then he takes the drive with him.
Try to do that on a Raid.... it is Impossible.

LVM and Raid can anyone do, I am interested in
linking folders into one, by FTP software or by
OS. If it can't be done I'll make the software
me self, but why invent the wheel if some
one already did?

Thank you for your answer, even if it did not help.

I need help with a thing, I got a server with alot of drives.
I do not wanna JBOD or Raid em. if one fail lots of data needs to be replaced.
What I am thinking of is linking several folders into 1 folder.

like this

/mnt/hdb1/stuff1 >> /raid/stuff
/mnt/hdc1/stuff2 >> /raid/stuff
/mnt/hdd1/stuff3 >> /raid/stuff
/mnt/hde1/stuff4 >> /raid/stuff

creating a folder with the total data of the other folders....
ioFTPd solved it like this

"The contents of two or more dirs can be merged as shown below.
Note: For read-only purposes! Writing is however possible, uploaded
files (in a raided VFS dir) will be stored on last device specified,
in this case e:dir2.

Example:
"d:dir1" /archive
"e:dir2" /archive
..."

Can this be done? In Linux? I'm a n00b, but I have been
working with large arrays a while and I'm getting tierd of the
massive ammount of folders.
Please help or inform me.
