Master Thesis - Past Projects - Abstract
Construction of a DFS client for the operating system Linux, for the use with a DFS server in a DCE network
This thesis is about creating a distributed file system (DFS)
client for a Linux operating system, to be used in a distributed
computing environment (DCE). The DCE system is developed by
The Open Group, which is an organisation consisting of several
large companies, and universities throughout the world. The
purpose of this thesis are to examine ways to contruct a DFS
client for the Linux operating system, to discuss which way is
preferred, and to begin the programming part of it. The
programming part is focused on the connection between Linux and
the DFS client. The part which is not yet programmed, is the
connection between the DFS client and the DCE system. The
report consists of two main parts. The first contains a description
of the DCE/DFS system, as well as the Linux system, with
emphasis on its virtual file system. The second part of the report
deals with the implementation of a DFS client on Linux.
Keywords: Linux, DFS / DCE
