Back in Paris we started talking about Manila mount automation, whereby file shares could be automatically mounted on clients, and this will likely be a topic in Vancouver. So in order to have an informed discussion at the summit, I'd like to explore a few things beforehand.
Besides brute force approaches like SSH or PsExec, one of the community suggestions was to use Zeroconf (aka Bonjour). Zeroconf sounds attractive on the surface, but it seems to have a number of limitations:
* No standard way to specify local mount point
* Additional setup required to work beyond the 'local' domain
* Custom software needed on clients to mount advertised shares
* Same issues with network connectivity as any other mount automation solution
Does anyone have a clearer idea how Zeroconf might satisfy the need for Manila mount automation?
