I have a user that needs a 50GB storage chunk allocated to him ... that chunk needs to be mounted and acessable via nfs

A step by step would be very helpful

    Accepted Solution

    1. get a NFS box that has +50GB to spare (with quota support to limit it to 50 GB if you are not using a 50GB filesystem)
    2. export the thing in NFS (depending on your NFS box...)
    3. mount the filesystem in the target box (mount -t nfs <target_box:/target_share /local_directory)

    Be more specific if you want better answers.
