cowboy me, 2.0: jose nazario beauty and the street


notes on AFS on OpenBSD

openbsd uses the arla implementation of afs. what is afs? its a distributed filesystem with better WAN performance than NFS, more multigrained security than you can find in NFS, and ultimately a pretty easy to use structure.

some notes on getting it to work on OpenBSD: and voila:
$ ls /afs
andrew.cmu.edu      cs.cmu.edu          openafs.org         ua
athena.mit.edu      glue.umd.edu        rpi.edu             ualberta.ca
cern.ch             ipp-garching.mpg.de sks                 umich.edu
citi.umich.edu      nersc.gov           stacken.kth.se      wam.umd.edu
i'm surfing the AFS space and testing a quick patch.

notes from: http://archives.neohapsis.com/archives/openbsd/2001-03/0435.html

thanks to johansson and beck for getting me started. i've always wanted to play with AFS, but i never checked it out (and so it didn't make the book).

the book is in production, by the way, expect a new openbsd book this march.
