I have a large number of NFS shares on a private server of mine, and they all exists fairly deep in the directory tree, ie:
Share list: /data/files/external/share_a /data/files/external/share_b /data/files/external/share_c
I have to access these shares periodically, and always via command-line, ie:
mount -t nfs 192.168.1.5:/data/files/external/share_a /mnt/network/share_a
Is there a way to shorten the paths as far as the NFS client sees them. I'm thinking of making a directory on the server called "shares", which contains symlinks to the roots of the folders, then sharing the symlinks instead of the folders.
Share List: /shares/share_a /shares/share_b /shares/share_c Symlink details: /shares/share_a ==> /data/files/external/share_a /shares/share_b ==> /data/files/external/share_b /shares/share_c ==> /data/files/external/share_c
Will this sort of thing work?
