How to set up a CIFS Mount in a Clustered Configuration for a FileSystem Partition to use With FileStore Provider? (Doc ID 1182573.1)

On UCM Linux, a 2-node Active/Active cluster was set up as follows:

/<relative_web_root>/Node1 or /<relative_web_root>/Node2.
An NFS mount for /<relative_web_root where shared files will go was created. 
When setting up a partition for files a new mount is required. The Content Server Installation guide recommends that a windows share be located under the vault directory. 

When the first server starts, a windows share is mounted using mount.cifs to 
/<relative_web_root>/<shared_fs>/vault/ucmdata from \\windowsserver\ucmdata 
This is the first server to be started and /<relative_web_root> would be shared.

Next the second server is started. NFS is used to mount /<relative_web_root> on this machine.

Should the windows share be available automatically from the /<relative_web_root> share?

In testing, files stored to this partition end up in different locations when stored to node specific sessions.

How should this be setup so that the windows share is available as the same location to both clustered nodes?
