Yes, I had a discussion with Jim some time ago about this but the
thing remained in the fog... And also isn't only about NFS is about
also Window's \\<Server>\<Share> way. (We have the servers on the Win
platform). This will be the greatest way to keep the db safe on
another system in a case of a very serious of hardware failure (let's
say we have a special multiprocessor motherboard).
Can you give a timeline for this?
