Dear All,
During mdt it ask for --fsname flag , docs mentioned it is a name for
filesystem name to which mdt part of .. that is ok but on client when i
mount /lustre/fsname it mount complete lustre filesystem .

1) Can a mds/mdt serve more than one fsname ?

2) What is the best practice for maintaining different projects/users ?
including home folders

3) Beside just linux uids, gids is there any better way of Authn/Authz in
lustre ? for e..g I want a User X to mount only /lustre/fsname/homeX and
/lustre/fsname/projectX folders .. no way he should mount /lustre/fsname.

any advice ?
