How to share a directory, such as /home, among multiple vserver guests.


Comprehensive Work, I liked It, Thanks


The following command will mount this directory for all guests:

$ for guest in /var/lib/vservers/*; do mount --bind /srv/common/home ${guest}/home; done

Note that you might have to (re)start your vserver AFTER the mount for the shared path to be visible under it.


Alternatively, you may add an entry similar to the below one in /etc/vservers/<guest>/fstab:

/srv/common/home       /home    none    bind    0 0
