Description: Allows two SPARCstations or PCs running Solaris 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 to be organized in a cluster with both hosts sharing disk resources. The shared disks can be a dual-ported SCSI Raid, or Fibre Channel storage subsystem. Sharefs is a loadable module that provides a Solaris compatible file system in the same manner as UFS, NFS, PCFS and other file systems. Protects the structure of the file system to allow concurrent use of the same partition. Concurrent use of the same files is not be protected by sharefs, and must therefore be managed by a higher-level locking protocol. File locks are provided for the use of such a protocol. The file system is compatible with UFS' on-disk format, so that disks may freely be interchanged between UFS and sharefs, and file systems may be created and maintained with the usual utilities (newfs, fsck, etc).
