Create the N1 Grid Service Provisioning System base directory on the shared storage. The location for the base directory can reside on a Global File System (GFS) or it can reside on a Failover File System (FFS) with an HAStoragePlus resource. It is best practice to store it on a FFS.
The FFS is required because the Master Server uses the directory structure to store its configuration, logs, deployed applications, database and so on. The Remote agent and the Local Distributor store their caches below the base directory. It is not recommended to store the binaries on the local storage and the dynamic parts of the data on the shared storage.
It is best practice to mount Global File Systems with the /global prefix and to mount Failover File Systems with the /local prefix.
