According to the Grid Manager Administration course notes, the following is required to be stored on a shared file system:
Since the SAS config directory contains at least SAS configs and deployed jobs, I think the conclusion is that you should place the configuration directory on the shared file system.

So we are sharing all of those currently, what i want to know is whether or not we should share the Lev1 directory amongst the tiers. We tried to install all of them under the same area, and hit nothing but problems.

I'm curious about this too. I'm building a Grid and have shared storage. I was under the impression that SASConfig was on the local machine. Not the shared storage. Or is the just the SASConfig directory of the SAS Applications/Grid Nodes and not the other meta and middle nodes?

Interesting. I wonder if this was causing some issues as I was installing config files for all servers locally. Anyway, SAS is currently rebuilding my plan files, so, I'll keep this mind though. Thanks!

So that helps us with how we can configure the underlying storage. So if i understand you correctly, we can share all of SASHome where SAS is installed across every node in the cluster, but for SASConfig only share this directory(technically a separate mount for this to work) with the Compute Tier and Metadata Server. For the Mid-Tier it should be able to see the /SASHome where the installs are, and each /SASConfig should be local to each node.
Do you have documentation that says how to configure the Mid-Tier in this way? I have looked at all the documentation that i can find and cannot find any documentation referencing your recommendation.
