I've been testing Alfresco in a VM and I love it.
I'm using FreeNAS 9.10 for storing my data.
I'm trying to find discussions about it in a FreeNAS environment and I've found none.
More specifically, I'm looking for a "best practices" guide, so I don't need to experiment too much and start over 100 times.
I will be running Alfresco in a VM, installed on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
Then let it access a dedicated share on FreeNAS.
First question : I was thinking about giving a NFS share to Alfresco.
Would a CIFS share be better ?
And how do I deal with the ACL and such?
Also, for backup, I use ZFS replication, which is absolutely awesome.
However, I'm wondering if it will be a good match for Alfresco.
I understand that the files are stored like normal files so that part won't be a problem.
But I also understand that there are databases involved.
So I'm wondering if I should make up a script to stop MySQL, make a dump, and start it again.
Or maybe such feature already exist?
Finally, I'm wondering how to import all my files at once.
I've taking a look at the bulk import feature, which looks nice.
But it appears that the file have to be local.
Is it a good practice to mount a CIFS share on the Alfresco server and proceed with a bulk import from there?
Any comment or recommendation would be greatly appreciated!
