Thanks very much

All of our web servers are just heads for htdocs which live on NSS volumes served up from other systems. We have been doing this for ~10 years and it has worked fine.

So sure you can mount a NSS volume(s) via CIFS over top of /srv/www/htdocs and serve up that content via Apache, it works well. The distinct advantage of that arrangement is that you can create a user login for the mount which does not have rights to modify the contents be served up.

Should the Apache instance get compromised, even root compromise, your underlying web content cannot be corrupted, as even root would not have the ability to modify it.

Also have have all the good features of NSS, like snapshots, salvage, and robust rights assignments.

But yeah, we have been doing that for 10 years. It works.

I am trying to do this exact thing to get rid of an old netware box that is mounted on a centOS webserver. The nfs export on netware seemed to work much better, but are you suggesting to use NFS or CIFS with OES ? I seem to be able to mount the nss volume from OES, but when I try to access a page I receive a permission denied error.
