I saw and read responses about similar questions. I think I’ll not be first and surely not the last thinking this scenario. I’m trying to setup a common 1 or 2 resources that needs to be shared bidirectional with all host that lives on the lan. Connectivity is not an issue, I saw autodiscover and so on.
I guessing the best logic for doing it and the process.
This should be a setup:
- creates couple of shares on host 1.
- Host 2, autodiscover host 1 and it’s shares.
- Host 3, autodiscover host 1 and it’s shares (I should ignore host 2).
Seems the best way to do it but not sure if there is a way to avoid host 2…n announces themselves or at least avoid issues rejecting all n shares nodes.
I don’t want also to depends on host 1 for the rest of the mesh… because if host 1 is not present nothing will works.
I saw and read the role of introducer…but I don’t know how to manage it since seems like introducer is the Host 1 role I explained, but still means that if host 1 is down… rest is dead.
