How are your Linux boxes networked?  
Do you use NFS mounts, SMB mounts or something else?

check the file details with type and #file command to see what kind of directory is that ... generally green is executable file and sky blue is link file...

To accomplish this task i can suggest either NFS or SMB.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

#ls -li <dir>

This will give you inode number

#find / -inum <inodenumber>

if still doesn't show then use #df -h <dire_on_which_it's_already_Working>

Pls Paste here...
