I'm trying to configure a VServer for interactive login, where users
can access their NFS mounted home directories and I was trying
to figure out, what is the "best practice" to do that.

So, I have a few questions:

1. We are still running 2.4.29-vs1.2.10 on our production servers;
do I need to upgrade to kernel 2.6.x and/or vs 2.0-rc-x ?

2. If using vs2.0: What is the preferred XID tagging config
(all uids, gids < 65000)

3. Should I NFS mount the home directories on the master server (a)
or within the vserver (b)?

  if (a): mount directly into the vserver chroot or mount outside the
  vserver filesystem and use bind mounts? Does the master server
  need to be aware about the users on the vserver (/etc/passwd, ...)?

  if (b): which extra privileges/capabilities to grant the vserver?

4. Are there NFS locking issues? Can multiple vserver on the
same master mount the home directories simultaneously?

5. Is it possible to get rpc.quota information on the vserver?

6. A previous posting says that one should prefer tcp over
udp mounts. Can you elaborate, why? Is this a general advice
or meant especially for vservers?

Thanks for your help / pointing me to the appropriate docs.

Cheers, Thomas
