Comment 1 Csaba Henk 2011-08-25 07:06:21 EDT
Add an RPC service to glusterd by which the cli can ask it to perform mounts on its behalf.

The mount are given access to only the user requested by the cli. Moreover, that user gets full control over the mount (allowed to do privileged operations). Granting mounts to users are controlled by glusterd volume config.

This way we can lease privileges over a volume to an unprivileged system user in a controlled way.
