> so to rephrase my question will the NAS be simply seen as local storage for the MBE? Will the SBE connect to the MBE which then in turn connects to the NAS? will the FE connect to the MBE and in turn connect to the NAS? I was hoping that the SBE and FE could connect directly to the NAS otherwise the storage isn't really centralised.
Yes, if you set everything up correctly. The key is this part:

If the NAS is mounted on the FE or SBE in the exactly same mount point
as on the MBE then it will use the local mount first (ie will use the
NAS directly without going through the MBE).
