Subject Re: Using Tomcat over NFS over multiple hosts, want to separate locations of directories
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2006 05:02:38 GMT
Just wanted to make sure you didn't have 1.4 .

Going out on a limb here, do you have allowlinking =true attribute set in 
you context? It might be worth a try as some of your paths may appear as 
links to Tomcat even if they are mounted volumes.
