Yes, I want local caching but also transparent writes. If I'm in the UK
I want to write FileServerInTheUk (ans that goes auto to
FileServerInTheUS which holds the storage) and if I'm in the US, I want
to write to US server.
Is this case handled by AFS?
The last case is that I need to mount the partition with NFS *and* Samba
(we are a mixed Windows/UNIX shop) on Linux and Windows hosts (access
through AFS only is out of the question...) so I'm not sure that AFS
will do it... Or am I wrong?
