    Hi Dave,

    I’m thankful and I appreciate the blog post, but i’m very much confused on these items.. request your inputs..

    1) Should i choose automatic mount (or) should i choose manual mount in the DO control panel?
    2) I’m guess i should not follow the tutorial at DO? (you’ve put it only as reference?)
    3) I have 3 Nodes (+1 Load balancer). Can i setup volume on the Node 1 and then mount it to node 2 and 3? (or) should i explicitly create another droplet only for this volume?

    I have tried to create volume on the Node 1 and then changing the steps above accordingly, but the part where “Node 1 should be an NFS server as well as NFS common” confuses me.. Please throw some light on this..

    Thanks & Regards,

      1) Automatic
      2) No, follow my guide
      3) If you mean a storage volume, Digital Ocean do not yet allow you to connect them to more than one node. This would be great – like a storage area network (SAN).
