OpenAFS – Experience

I work for a company that has approx 150 users, 100 of those are in 8 offices divided pretty evenly, the rest are at home. I am looking at setting up OpenAFS (www.openafs.org) for filesharing. The home users would use the windows client and office users would connect to a Samba/OpenAFS bridge. Does anyone have any experience with OpenAFS? Thoughts?

    OpenAFS allows sharing disk space amongst hosts by all wikis participants on the Internet share one logical file space. It is an open source of Andrew File System / AFS. Each OpenAFS site has its own cell, which is compatible to windows domain (as mentioned by u Samba/OpenAfs bridge). U may use modprobe, which helps to loads AFS into the kernel. And now create partitions for storing AFS volumes. Also u may use pluggable authentication module / PAM for authenticate of afs client computers. This is the thoughts, that I worked past on the same, but currently, I am not using it. But, if ur intention to only file sharing and set up procedure, please Link Here and Also see a Good Reference
