Setting up normally but with the file systems you're not writing to mounted read only on all the other nodes also works. Then it is still easy to assemble what you need from a connection to a single node.

I don't see any likely issues with this configuration either, but if it were me, I'd probably use ssh/scp as my first choice--mostly because I could do that myself without needing anyone's help/intervention. It'd also keep my configuration more "standard" and able to follow OFA which I suspect you wouldn't easily be able to do if you tried to move all the dump dirs.

Either way should work though...
