help with push/pulling files to isilon storage from a remote network
Posted on 2014-03-21
Hi I'm a Linux newbie and hope you can help with this one.
We are a broadcast station where we primarily have a mix of servers running Linux and Windows. We have implemented Windows AD for central account mgmt. We also have a large storage array with NFS and SMB mounts/shares. We are currently in the process of turning user mode on in our storage forcing users to have an authenticated AD account to access large storage.
Our operations is installing another ingest system for On Air TV that cannot be joined to our existing Windows AD domain. In order to be able to port over any content for airing that is on our storage, we have decided to place a intermediate bridge server, that resides in betweeen the new ingest system and our production storage. The idea would be to set up the bridge server with Linux which would have an NFS mount to production storage. The bridge server would be joined to the AD domain. The new ingest systems (running Windows7 & Windows 2008R2 on a seperate subnet) would then ftp completed media files from ingest to the bridge server that has the nfs to production storage. The initial ftp session would use the local account from the ingest system subnet but is there a way to push the file to the Production NFS mount and have it use an AD account? Could this be done in a single process? i.e eliminating the need of a two step file transfer process, ftp to bridge server then bridge server to NFS share? How would I do this? Sorry for the long message.....
