I know this reaction comes a little late, but...

I get the Impression you're implying that AFS is a good choice for
"mission-critical data storage".

Wouldn't it be responsible right now to warn newcomers about the
CopyOnWrite failure issue on linux?

While these issues are present AFS is not exactly the premium choice
for mission-critical data storage either.

I can personally live with the workaround, but others can't and
there's severe loss of data looming.

I don't know if these issues are present under Solaris as well, so my
remark does probably not apply to the first poster's request.

Just to put some salt into the wound :)
Have a nice day
