Remote mount an already mounted nfs filesystem

Hello all,

We're using JET to build our systems.. I'm in the process of needing to build a centrally located JET box with access to all our networks rather that 2 or 3 dotted around. Part of the means I need to locate the boot & OS images on an NFS mount (via NETAPP filer)..

However in the past when I tried to use JET with NFS mounted OS images it failed..

Can someone clarify whether or not this is actually possible as I've got a few supplier techies saying it is...

Many thanks...

The install and config images can be on NFS, but the boot filesystems cannot.
